I'm very pleased to announce Amazon has started to deliver my new book
Designing Gestural Interfaces. It should also be on bookshelves
tomorrow (at least in the US and Canada).

In honor of this, I'm releasing some drawings my friend Rachel Glaves
did for the book, which are suitable for using in documentation.
Especially useful for those of us who can’t draw well, the drawings
are of hands performing common touchscreen gestures like tap, slide,
point, drag, pinch, and spread. The stencils are in OmniGraffle,
Illustrator, and Photoshop formats.

Enjoy!

Nice, I'm very interested in gestual/tangible experiences. I'm
always glad to hear about new stuff concerning this!

Good stuff.

"'wave to activitate,'  as well as the catalog of gestures that could be used as the basis of a physical control idiom (like 'shake head no')"
