Early Prototyping of 3D-Gesture Interaction within the Presentation-Gesture-Dialog Design Space

Development of gesture interaction requires a combination of three design matters: presentation, gesture and dialog. In this contribution a first version of the tool ProGesture is introduced. The objective of its development is to cope with the resulting presentation-gesture-dialog design space in a flexible way. On the one hand, it aims at the early development phases, i.e. at rapid prototyping of 3D-gestures in combination with first UI sketches, such as mockups. On the other hand, it focuses on dialog and presentation modeling, and on testing based on executable models aiming at a smooth transition from informal UI sketches to formal models.
