Technology used to improve quality of life. It is invading every area in human lives and continuously developed in many sectors. The ability of research and development is always done by scientists and engineers. Innovation emerges methods for creating and developing activities those are done by individual or group. In this paper presents an instrumentation design of gesture technology that is using two components to transmit data to other devices, e.g. personal computer (PC) and mobile devices. The two components are wireless sensor network (WSN) and short message service (SMS) modules. These components are needed to yield a functioning portable instrumentation. The device used as data controller to the wireless sensor network and short message service modules is Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Pi is an open-source hardware platform. Implementation of kinect is used to capture human body motion, i.e. head, hands, and feet. Each part is scalable as value of capturing human body motion.
