Objective: The aim of this study is to get an optimal mental model by investigating user`s natural behavior for controlling smart TV by mid-air gestures and to identify which factor is most important for controlling behavior. Background: A lot of TV companies are trying to find simple controlling method for complex smart TV. Although plenty of gesture studies proposing they could get possible alternatives to resolve this pain-point, however, there is no fitted gesture work for smart TV market. So it is needed to find optimal gestures for it. Method: (1) Eliciting core control scene by in-house study. (2) Observe and analyse 20 users` natural behavior as types of hand-held devices and control scene. We also made taxonomies for gestures. Results: Users` are trying to do more manipulative gestures than symbolic gestures when they try to continuous control. Conclusion: The most natural way to control smart TV on the remote with gestures is give user a mental model grabbing and manipulating virtual objects in the mid-air. Application: The results of this work might help to make gesture interaction guidelines for smart TV.
