I hope you all will read my Call to Arms for Interaction Designers:

<http://www.adaptivepath.com/blog/2007/08/28/a-call-to-arms-for-
interaction-designers/>

Then start to work on the Interactive Gestures wiki I've started:

<http://www.interactivegestures.com>

I really think it is something important for this generation of
interaction designers, and the IxDA as an organization, to get behind
and work on.

Dan this is AWESOME!!!!
Thanx so much for doing this.
I hope I find some time to contribute, but something to consider, as
I will have to consider it is that b/c I work for an IP powerhouse a
lot of the ideas I'm generating are "owned" by side IP factory and
I may not be able to contribute as much as I would like in the
direction that you are hoping that many will.

It's interesting for us to think what would it have been like "back
then" if IP was treated the way it is today?

Count me in!

"Interactive Gestures" can be a fairly broad term. Are you thinking of
hand/finger gestures used in touch screen interaction specifically, or
interactive gestures in the broadest sense? All the way to "waving fists and
stomping feet in order to scare away goats"?

Broad is probably better. Some gestures are going to be touch screen,
but as environments and objects become equipped with sensors, off-
screen gestures are going to become increasingly important too.

Hear, hear! This is an exciting idea. Are you going full wiki-style, i.e. should we just start posting ideas/structures now, or is there discussion you're looking to have first?> To: discuss at lists.interactiondesigners.com> From: dave at ixda.org> Date: Tue, 28 Aug 2007 16:48:00 -0700> Subject: Re: [IxDA Discuss] Interactive Gestures Wiki> > Dan this is AWESOME!!!!> Thanx so much for doing this.> I hope I find some time to contribute, but something to consider, as> I will have to consider it is that b/c I work for an IP powerhouse a> lot of the ideas I'm generating are "owned" by side IP factory and> I may not be able to contribute as much as I would like in the> direction that you are hoping that many will.> > It's interesting for us to think what would it have been like "back> then" if IP was treated the way it is today?> > > . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .> Posted from the new ixda.org> http://beta.ixda.org/discuss?post=19855> > > ________________________________________________________________> Welcome to the Interaction Design Association (IxDA)!> To post to this list ....... discuss at ixda.org> List Guidelines ............ http://beta.ixda.org/guidelines> List Help .................. http://beta.ixda.org/help> Unsubscribe ................ http://beta.ixda.org/unsubscribe> Questions .................. list at ixda.org> Home ....................... http://beta.ixda.org

Interesting idea. I am doing a PhD on gesture recognition at the TU Delft, Industrial Design faculty. We are working together with computer scientists on video-based gesture recognition. Currently there are so many silly user requirements (as in restrictions to the behaviour of users, their clothing, lighting conditions, etc) that it is difficult to go beyond the kind of motion sensing we have seen in the EyeToy and Xbox (by GestureTek).

Good design in for example the EyeToy enabled a decent interface through \'gesturing\'. Things like waving at a button for a certain period, with good visual feedback in the button, made it possible to navigate the UI.

I try to keep track of gesture recognition applications on my blog \'A Nice Gesture\'. Feel free to copy it to the wiki if you like.

Anyway, good luck with the intitiative and I will keep an eye out for it.

Well, The Clapper is already accounted for.

Just discovered this site through AP's twitter. Would love to be
involved in this discussion and will certainly check out the wiki and
get involved.

Regarding finger gestures and touch screens: Interesting video showing use
of the new Samsung YP-P2 touch screen phone here:
