Title:

    Whadget: interactive animation using personification gesture expression of hand

Abstract:


    By pointing your index and middle fingers downward and make strides with them, you have what looks like a walking hand. Whadget is an interactive animation which uses a system that distinguishes various personified gesture motions of a hand such as walking on fingertips. By assigning a bare hand as an independent character by itself, users are able to interact with a digital creature which reacts to the users’ personified hand movements.
