Gesture based UX and it's impact on usability and user interface design.

As technology advances, gestures seems to be an ever growing feature in many current and upcoming devices. Devices such as the XBOX, mobile devices, and tablets, all have many gestures that come native with each device or operating system.

During this meetup, we will focus on the way we use "gestures"on devices to improve our lives and how it impact's our designs and experiences when designing for gaming, tv, and mobile mediums.

We will also be giving an open session and discussion on this topic afterwards.
