Title: An Architecture for Gesture Based Apps
Speaker: Marlin Eller, Part-Time Lecturer at Northeastern University – Seattle
Location: Northeastern University – Seattle Campus, 225 Terry Avenue North, 3rd Floor, Suite #300, Orcas Classroom, Seattle, Washington 98109
Most user interfaces for applications (since the development of GUIs) use the mouse in very limited ways, primarily point and click and some dragging. Professor Eller will discuss his Reaction architecture that uses shape recognition on the mouse (or finger) strokes in order to enable the development of gesture based applications.
