Gestures above a mobile phone would let users interact with their devices quickly and easily from a distance. While both researchers and smartphone manufacturers develop new gesture sensing technologies, little is known about how best to design these gestures and interaction techniques. Our research looks at creating usable and socially acceptable above-device interaction techniques. We present an initial gesture collection, a preliminary evaluation of these gestures and some design recommendations. Our findings identify interesting areas for future research and will help designers create better gesture interfaces.
