Object interaction using gesture control

This research focuses on the design, validation and development of a new interaction model, from now on known as MiwMiw, whose main goal is to improve the dialogue with everyday objects, enduing them with new functionalities in a close, tangible and natural way. Throughout the whole process we analyse a set of concepts that establish the basis on which the project is based, such as: the Internet of Things, ubiquitous computing, tangible user interfaces (TUI), sensor network user interfaces (SNUI), smart objects and gesture based interaction. Likewise, we analyse existing projects whose research lines interlace with the one established by MiwMiw, which allow us to set the conceptual basis for the later concretion of the project.
