A growing number of gesture-controlled consumer electronics are coming to market. Some of the latest smart TVs, smartphones, cameras and game consoles are able to capture our hand movements and translate them into user interface commands.
This poses new challenges for user experience design for globally merchandized devices, as gesture behavior is presumably influenced by local cultures.
As specialists for culture-specific user experience research, UX Fellows wanted to find out which semantic gestures people from various cultures would spontaneously use to control consumer electronics like interactive TVs.
