Different People, Different Gestures


IUP has interviewed 340 participants in nine countries and draw several interesting implications about multi-touch gesture interaction.

“Around the globe, users use the same gestures to operate multi-touch interfaces - as confirmed by a study of the International Usability Partners (IUP). The international network interviewed 340 participants in nine countries wanted to find out about cultural differences in operating multi-touch interfaces. Another result of the study: a gesture set, recommending intuitive gestures for 28 actions to support designers in interface design.”

Very interesting!

Thanks, Andreas.

Capacitive touchscreen that senses gloves and pens

Hitachi has given a demonstration of a new capacitive touchscreen that could allow touch without needing direct finger contact. The surface still uses projection to catch the input but can recognize not only a thin layer in between, such as cloth from a glove, but also completely inanimate points such as a pen or a fingernail, Japan's Nikkei BP learned.
