Abstract

Current multi-touch pressure sensitive Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) hardware and software (e.g., Apple iPhones, Android Phones, etc.) allow users to seamlessly interact with software applications using gestures, but underutilize their potential by only employing a limited set of Human Computer Interactions (HCI) (e.g., panning, zooming, etc.) Multi-touch pressure sensitive hand movements, hereafter called gestures, combined with real-time physics can result in more realistic and intuitive software applications. JHT s goal is to research, define, and develop reusable real-time physics, navigation, and meta gestures API software and standards for use in training, simulations, architectural design, and entertainment software applications on COTS multi-touch hardware.
