In this study, we describe about our approach for the selection technique by using user-centered region to define selection state. It is a mainly subject to realize the efficient selection gesture by user’s arm for any position on the screen. we designed selection region and pointer fixed region by using relative position of the user’s arm joints. Our method uses user’s hands, elbows and shoulder position at each arm. And it recognized user’s selected points by the relative position of these joints. We make the prototype system which has been implemented our method. And we confirm behavior of our technique from the prototype system. Through the experiment of our selection method, it is confirmed that our method allows users to perform smooth selecting operation regardless of objects position.
