Abstract

Public displays that allow users to interact with them through mid-air gestures are still relatively rare, as many applications rely on touch-based interaction. This paper introduces Information Wall, a gesture-controlled public information display that provides multi-user access to contextually relevant local information using remote pointing and mid-air gestures. The application has been studied in two settings: a lab-based user study and several short-term deployments. Based on our results, we present practical guidelines for gesture-controlled public display design.
