The patented intuitive interface allow users to create imaginary three dimensional (3D) objects of any shape using body gestures performed by the users as a primary or only input. The technology may be used by children to “draw in the air”.
The user starts by scanning an arbitrary body gesture into an initial shape of an object. Next, the user performs various gestures using his body, which result in various edits to the object. After the object is completed, the object can also be animated, based on movements of the user.
