A Study on Selection Ability in the 3D Space by the Finger
Intuitive gestures are very effective for interactions. Pointing gesture with a finger would be used for interactions like pie menu selection. It has been researched as to the appropriate numbers of menu items being displayed in a pie menu. However, no research has been made for the case where menus are selected by using gestures. We got the ability of pointing gesture (selection ability) in the 3-dimentional space from the previous research. By combining the obtained resolution abilities of pointing gesture at the 2-dimentional surface of Pitch and Yaw, it is suggested that the selection ability of selection behavior in the 3-dimentional space is 22 areas. We will experiment in order to examine whether the subjects really point 22 areas without vertical guide. As a result, we found they can point 12 areas of 22.
