In this paper, we describe about our selected method by using the 3D tile menu by hand gesture motion. In the discussion of our approach,it is a mainly subject to realize the efficient selection gesture by user’s arm for any position on the screen. Therefore, we designed the selection method by using relative position of the user’s arm joints. The method uses user’s hands, elbows and shoulder position at each arm. 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 examined the basic evaluation of our selection method by comparing with the conventional method. As a result of this evaluation, it is confirmed that our method allows users to perform smooth selecting operation regardless of the position.
