In-air hand gestures allow users to interact with mobile phones without reaching out and touching them. Users need helpful and meaningful feedback while they gesture, although mobile phones have limited feedback capabilities because of their small screen sizes. Interactive light feedback illuminates the surface surrounding a mobile phone, giving users visual feedback over a larger area and without affecting on-screen content. We explore the design space for interactive light and our demonstration shows how we can use this output modality for gesture feedback.
