Abstract

In this paper, we present an interactive sand art drawing system using Kinect. Our system adopts a vision-based bare hand detection method which effectively detects the hand position and recognizes the hand gestures. Then, the corresponding sand manipulation actions are performed. Our system supports the common sand drawing functions, such as sand erosion, sand sand spilling, and sand leaking. To use hands to draw virtual sand on a drawing plane, we design four key gestures which enable drawing manipulation actions for sand. The basic idea is that the gesture of one hand controls the drawing action. The motion and gesture of the other hand controls the drawing position. Our preliminary experimental results show that our system enables sand drawing with bare hands using Kinect. A user study indicates our system is useful to sand art drawing.
