This work investigates narrative hand gestures used on digital surfaces while interacting with virtual objects to narrate a story. We found that narrative gestures are fundamentally different than traditional gestures used to interact with on-screen objects. Narrative gestures are used to communicate visual meaning to an audience.

This paper replicates Morris's Web on the Wall guessability study first using Wizard of Oz for multimodal interaction elicitation around Kinect. To obtain reproducible and implementable user-defined interaction sets, the paper argues for extending the methodology to include a draft of the system for mixed-initiative elicitation with real system dialogue.

We present a video-based gesture dataset, a taxonomy, and a methodology for annotating video-based gesture datasets. We design and use a crowd-sourced classification task to annotate the videos. The results are made available through a web-based visualization that allows researchers and designers to explore the dataset.

We present a survey on touch-based gestures recognition techniques and frameworks. We propose an extended set of requirements such techniques and frameworks should meet in order to provide better support to multi-touch applications. Gestures may be described formally or by user-provided examples. Frameworks integrate the multi-touch sensors drivers to the application and may use different gesture recognizers.

We introduce HuddleLamp and its novel hybrid sensing approach. This approach combines RGB and depth input for detecting and tracking movements of multiple mobile screens with sub-centimetre precision by exploiting their optical characteristics in both the RGB and IR range.

We present freeform interactive loudspeakers for creating spatial sound experiences from a variety of surfaces. Our proposed system creates directional sound and can be easily embedded into architecture, furniture and many everyday objects.

We developed a novel tactile display that provides a multi-push sensation by using a 6-axis motion platform. When a second finger touches the display, the surface panel declines and the position of the first finger remains unchanged. Thus, the user can push at two positions on the surface panel.

Even though Multi Surface Environments (MSE) and how to perform interactions in these environments have received much attention during recent years, interaction with geospatial data in MSEs is still limited. To summarize the earlier research in this area, this paper presents a systematic review of MSE interactions with geospatial data.

We report on two studies to understand the effect of view techniques on collaboration and awareness. We first studied the performance of view-techniques on spatial arrangement to understand by how much different view configuration affect group performance in mixed-focus tasks. Then we studies how do people choose to configure their environment when working in a realistic mixed-focus activity.

This work presents pen-based techniques to annotate maps and selectively convert those annotations into spatial queries to search for POIs within explicitly input or implicit scopes (areas and paths). We further provide pen gestures to calculate routes between multiple locations. A user evaluation confirms the potential of our techniques.
