Using your hands 🖐

by Thong Nguyen and Bryce Howitson | at Minnebar spring 2020 (canceled)

Gestural interfaces are nothing new - tapping, swiping, and pinching are the core interactions that have made mobile experiences what they are today.

But what happens when your hands and fingers are tracked in three dimensions? Is it good enough for general consumers today? Will all the prevailing wisdom and tools we have for creating flat interfaces still be relevant?

We will be discussing:
* Device demos & discussion (i.e. Quest, HoloLens, Index)
* Interactions that should work in theory but not in practice
* Looking forward - why all this matters

Obligatory Tony Stark reference
