Leap Motion : A study in user experience of hand gestures as an input device for personal computers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna C-uppsats undersöker ifall gestbaserad interaktion med Leap Motion leder till trötthet i armen. Den undersöker även potentiella utvecklingsmöjligheter för produkten. Syftet med studien är att undersöka specifika handgester med Leap Motion och framtagande av riktlinjer för interaktionsdesigners. Med hjälp av två intervjuer med personer utbildade inom ergonomi, har vi kunnat få information om datoranvändning ur ett ergonomiskt perspektiv. Det har även genomförts användartester med åtta deltagare för att få svar på upplevelsen av de olika handgesterna som används vid interaktionen med Leap Motion. Alla användartester observerades för att samla ytterligare information kring deltagarnas användarupplevelse. Resultaten visar att handgester inte är den enda aspekten som kan leda till trötthet i armen. Användarupplevelsen påverkas även av hur användaren sitter, om tekniken fungerar korrekt, och ifall handgesterna är förstådda. Resultaten kan användas som riktlinjer för framtida utveckling av applikationerna för Leap Motion.

Abstract [en]

This essay examines if gesture based interaction with Leap Motion leads to arm fatigue. It also examines the potential for development of the product. The purpose of the study is to examine specific hand gestures with Leap Motion and the development of guidelines for interaction designers. Using two interviews with people educated in ergonomics, we have been able to get information about computer use from an ergonomic perspective. User tests with eight participants have been conducted to examine the experience of the different hand gestures used when interacting with Leap Motion. All user testing was observed to gather additional information regarding the participants' user experience. The results show that hand gestures are not the only aspect which can lead to arm fatigue. The user experience is also affected by how the user is sitting, if the technology works properly, and if the hand gestures are understood. The results can be used as guidelines in future development of the applications for Leap Motion.
