Abstract

In this paper, we propose a Two Handed Interactive Menu as an evaluation of asymmetric bimanual gestures. The menu is split into two parts, one for each hand. The actions are started with the non-dominant hand and continued with the dominant one. Handedness is taken into consideration, and a different interface is generated depending on the handedness. The results of our experiments show that two hands are more efficient than one; however the handedness itself did not affect the results in a significant way. We also introduce the Three Fingers Click, a selection mechanism that explores the possibility of using a depth-sensing camera to create a reliable clicking mechanism. Though difficult to maintain, our Three Fingers Clicking gesture is shown in the experiments to be reliable and efficient.
