The sound of one hand clapping

Posted on Posted in 2014 Workgroup Topic Proposals

More and more gesture-based computer controllers are being developed (Leap motion, Myo, etc.). In the movies and TV (hello, Star Trek fans), these always have sounds, but as yet, these devices are usually released without sounds, to have each implementation/software using the device implement their own fx.

Should gestural sounds have some form of standardization, in the way that keyboard sounds and mouse clicks have?  What are some “universal” gestures that might need a standard set of interface sounds?
