Even though touchscreen and gestural technology has been around for decades, Nintendo’s Wii, Apple’s iPhone and Microsoft Surface have heralded a new era of interaction design where gestures in space and touches on a screen will be as prominent as pointing and clicking.
But how do you create products for this new paradigm? While most of us know how to design for web and desktop applications, many are still wondering how to adequately design for interactive gestures. This talk covers the basics: ergonomics, a brief history of gestural technology, prototyping and documenting, and how to communicate the presence of a gestural interface to users.
