PinkyMenu: Gesture with Pinky Finger Based Sketching Application for Tablet Computers

PinkyMenu explored using pinky finger to assist pen-based interaction on tablet.  A two-level menu was built in a painting application was built to demonstrate the usage of the novel gestures. A user can use the pinky finger to slide horizontally or vertically to control the two-level menu.  The major contribution of this tool is to explore the use of the dominant hand assisting with pen interaction to create a new way of developing menus and navigation systems without the use of a traditional menu and the non-dominant hand.

This project is a class project in CS6456 (Principles of User Interface Software) taught by Keith Edwards in Georgia Tech.[Report] [Video]
