Forget your mouse, now you can start, stop or skip a song while streaming music on Grooveshark by putting up your hand.

Grooveshark today (March 26) added an integration with Flutter, a Web app for gesture control. You can use it while you're sitting at your computer or as far as six feet away. At a distance, it lets people immersed in a messy project like painting control their music without interruption.

Flutter is free for PCs running Windows 7 and Macs with OSX. Flutter works through a computer's webcam and can be turned on or off. Even if the Grooveshark window is minimized or hidden on another tab, Flutter responds to a user's gestures. For now,  Grooveshark  must run on Chrome for Flutter to work, but a Firefox widget is in the works.

More gestures are also on the way, Grooveshark said in a statement. Flutter can also be used with iTunes and Spotify. Download it from  Flutter's website.
