The eyes are an interesting modality for pervasive interactions, though their applicability for mobile scenarios is restricted by several issues so far. In this paper, we propose the idea of contourguided gaze gestures, which overcome former constraints, like the need for calibration, by relying on unnatural and relative eye movements, as users trace the contours of objects in order to trigger an interaction. The interaction concept and the system design are described, along with two user studies, that demonstrate the method?s applicability. It is shown that users were able to trace object contours to trigger actions from various positions on multiple different objects. It is further determined, that the proposed method is an easy to learn, hands-free interaction technique, that is robust against false positive activations. Results highlight low demand values and show that the method holds potential for further exploration, but also reveal areas for refinement.
