Towards In-Air Gesture Control of Household Appliances with Limited Displays

Abstract : Recent technologies allow us to interact with our homes in novel ways, such as using in-air gestures for control. However, gestures require good feedback and small appliances, like lighting controls and thermostats, have limited, or no, display capabilities. Our research explores how other output types can be used to give users feedback about their gestures, instead, allowing small devices to give useful feedback. We describe the Gesture Thermostat, a gesture-controlled thermostat dial which gives multimodal gesture feedback.
