Hand tracking technologies allow users to control a remote display freely. The most prominent freehand remote controlling method is through a body-centric cursor, e.g. Kinect. Using that method, a user can first place the cursor to a rough position on the remote display, move the cursor to the exact position, and then commit the selection by a gesture. Although controlling the body-centric cursor is intuitive, it is not efficient for novel users who are not familiar with their proprioception. Inaccurate cursor placement results in long dragging movement, and therefore causes consequent arm fatigue problems.
