Abstract

Our research is about interactions using personified gesturemovements of a hand. Multi-touch gesture interaction has become a popular genre for usage both commercial and experimental alike, as they are being applied to various interfaces. However, those fingertip gestures are used in tool-like ways, such as tapping, dragging, and pinching digital objects. Whadget focuses on the human-like gestures our hands can perform such as by pointing the index and middle fingers downward and making strides with them, which is a form of non-tool-like and expressive use of hand. Through distinguishing various personified hand gestures, users are able to interact and play alongside with digital creatures, while those creatures treat your personified hand as a unique and independent character.
