Two Hands Gesture

Hi All,

Just curious, is there any possibility to implement two hands gestures? for example double air-tap hold (left and right) then calculate the distance between both air-tap hold to scale-up/down the hologram?
Thanks for your attention.

Cheers,

    @mARkus,
    Yes, it is possible to implement two handed gestures (you should receive a gesture started event for each hand).

    That said, we do not recommend two handed gestures as it is very easy for one of the user's hands to lose tracking by either moving the hand too far or by rotating the head and causing a hand to leave the gesture frame.

    Our recommendation is to implement single handed gestures to avoid user confusion (between applications) and frustration. For resize, I would look at how the Holograms application and the shell (resizing 2D applications) have the user select and move a corner.

    Thanks!
    David
