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.
