Summary Lift and Drop extends Pick-and-Drop by tracking hand motion and reproducing it on the display, allowing for visual feedback like regular Drag-and-Drop
Description Bader et al. (2010) used a motion-capture system called AirLift to explore an interaction technique Lift-and-Drop meant for moving objects between displays without using touch input, but instead relying on cameras to record the user’s gesture. An interaction would be registered by recording the gesture made and the position of the hand in the environment.
