Aura

Challenge

Touch screens are ubiquitous and are considered state of the art in intuitive interactions with devices. Still some issues remain unsolved.

How do we create an engaging user experience beyond touch?

We started with the creation of a library of gestures, that can be used alongside touch-interactions.

The iterative creative process covered not just the gestures themselves but also how a 3D gesture performed above the screen can be made visual on-screen, and therefore intuitive.

In order to verify our expectations about the intuitive nature of our designs, the gestures were prototyped in different sample applications that now run on a working prototype device.

Aura enhances the overall experience on touchscreens by removing some of the issues with touch screen interfaces, and by adding joy of use interactions.
