Capture Pointer

Is it possible to capture the pointer so even when you are outside the element listening to the pointer events you will still get them?

Hello right now, Hand.js does not support capturing the pointer.

If you want to do that, you can call the following function (when supported):

Sander Dieleman have made a jQuery plugin for capturing mouse pointer. I think we can use this code pattern for a polyfill :D

I'm not sure whether this is perfect or we should modify it.
