Gesture Sequence

A gesture sequence is literally a command given to the system by a series of separate gestures – hand, finger, arm or general body movements that are detected in some fashion by the interface hardware. By using a gesture sequence, the interface allows complex commands to be performed with minimal learning curve by the user.

The first gesture opens up an invisible menu of a sort – it primes the system to expect the second gesture. If the second gesture is not one of the acceptable options, or no second gesture is forthcoming, the system acknowledges the initial gesture was not a command, and does not process it further.

Gesture sequences thus allow natural gestures to be used inside the system as well as for commands. For example, the user pointing at something would be the first gesture in a sequence, but if a second gesture such as a flat palm or closed fist did not immediately follow it, the user is simply pointing at a structure for the benefit of another user, and has no wish to suddenly find themselves launched at the structure, or it brought to them.
