Project: HandMark Menus: Use Hands as Landmarks in Large Touch Screens

HandMark Menus are rapid access techniques specially designed for large multi-touch surfaces. There are two versions of HandMark Menus, and both place commands in spatially stable spaces around and between the fingers of both hands, so with practice, users can learn locations of commands by taking advantage of the proprioceptive knowledge of their own hands and fingers. Over time, experts can combine menu invocation and command selection to perform a rapid bimanual chorded selection. * Photo Courtesy: Dave Stobbe.
