Abstract

Interest in and development of touchless gestural interfaces has recently exploded, fueled by the diffusion of both commercial midair gesture platforms and public interactive displays. This paper focuses on an application based on Microsoft Kinect that allows students to browse a university website, hosted on a public display, through simple gestures. We present two empirical evaluations where we evaluated how users react to this new way of interaction. In addition to confirming the current lack of standards, our results provide some inspiration for the design of touchless interaction.
