Since the advent of Kinect, there has been an outbreak of applications that go beyond mouse and keyboard interfaces. Applications developers aim to enrich and re-imagine these interfaces using gesture and voice commands recognition for controlling some virtual and real world objects using a natural interaction mechanism. Aligned to this, there are problems to set a standard for these interfaces, plus a huge effort in performing simple tasks such as connecting sensors, processing data, recognizing gestures and running actions in real or virtual world. This paper proposes an extendable event-driven framework that improves the life cycle of designing and building interactive environments, making it possible to interact with both real and virtual environments.
