1. HAND GESTURE
Which state of hands should be starting point? This is the question that has to be answered. Having multiple hand gestures as the functions of the VR, the starting hand gesture is the first key to start.
I use the distances between different fingers which means starting from a fist is different from starting with a open palm. So, I started from looking at the history.
I started looking at the long time history, Italian(Roman) hand gestures. The hand gestures of Italian is from the multinational Roman empire which lasted for thousands of years.
B. Sign Languages
Sign language is simply developed for the people’s convenience in non-verbal communication. So it has a movement that is applicable to any hands and it is great reference to look at when it comes to looking for the hand gestures for the VR.
There were no clear preparing gesture in both Italian hand gestures and sign languages. So, I decided to have right hand gestures first and elaborate and conclude from those gestures will give a better vision of starting gesture.
So, I slimmed down to the 14 different hand gestures that would be recognizable by the Leap motion. Also I deleted repetitive gestures.
