Abstract/Summary

Mid-air gesture interaction is often considered as a "natural" and "intuitive" input method, however, there has been little investigation of how older adults perceive and interact with these interfaces. We report the preliminary results of an experiment in which 20 younger and 20 older adults, without previous experience of gesturing in the air, are asked to perform 15 commonly used gestures and complete 5 computer tasks using mid-air gestures. We aim to learn how each age group engages with mid-air gestures regarding perceived easiness, confidence, intention of use and physical effort.
