We created a set of gaze gestures that utilize the following three elements: simple one-segment gestures, off-screen space, and the closure of the eyes. These gestures are to be used as the moving tool in a gaze-only controlled drawing application. We tested our gaze gestures with 24 participants and analyzed the gesture durations, the accuracy of the stops, and the gesture performance. We found that the difference in gesture durations between short and long gestures was so small that there is no need to choose between them. The stops made by closing both eyes were accurate, and the input method worked well for this purpose. With some adjustments and with the possibility for personal settings, the gesture performance and the accuracy of the stops can become even better.
