Title: (EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL GESTURES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

In one embodiment, a method includes identifying a gesture with respect to one or more surfaces of the computing device, the gesture comprising an earlier portion on at least one of the surfaces that includes one or more first points touching the at least one of the surfaces; and immediately following the earlier portion of the gesture, a later portion of the gesture that includes a series of second points distant from the surfaces, wherein the series of second points forms a trajectory vector having: an initial point defined by the first points, and a terminal point distant from the surfaces; determining a user input based on the identified gesture and a corresponding first location on the user interface; and executing one or more actions based on the determined user input.
