In order to investigate gestural behavior during human-computer interactions, an investigation into the designs of current interaction methods is conducted. This information is then compared to current emerging databases to observe if the gesture designs follow guidelines discovered in the above investigation. The comparison will also observe common trends in the currently developed gesture databases such as similar gesture for specific commands. In order to investigate gestural behavior during interactions with computer interfaces, an experiment has been devised to observe and record gestures in use for gesture databases through the use of a hardware sensor device. It was discovered that factors such as opposing adjacent fingers and gestures that simulated object manipulation are factors in user comfort. The results of this study will create guidelines for creating new gestures for hand gesture interfaces.
