Gesture-based Interface Memorability
In this project we investigated the memorability of gestures in gesture-based Natural User Interfaces. These interfaces are becoming popular now through the introduction of new sensors in game Consoles such as the Microsoft Kinect and Nintendo Wii, and also for controlling a number of other devices, such as TVs (for example, Samsung’s SmartTVs).
We found that gestures that are designed by the users for themselves are much easier to remember, more fun, and required less effort than gestures designed for them.
