From dance to touch: movement qualities for interaction design

Abstract : In this paper we present a novel approach for the design of large-scale tactile ludic interfaces. Our contribution is a non task-oriented interaction technique based on modern dance for the creation of aesthetically pleasant large-scale tactile interfaces. This approach is based on dance movement qualities applied to touch interaction allowing for natural gestures in large touch displays. We used specific movements from a choreographic glossary and developed a robust movement quality recognition process. To illustrate our approach, we propose a media installation called A light touch, where touch is used to control a light spot.
