This article describes the web application called S3Doodle. It is an initial example of the combination of a stereoscopic graphical user interface that produces stereoscopic content and is controlled by hand gestures. The web application uses core stereo 3D concepts and implements them with cutting edge technology to create a differentiated experience. We use a spatial input control as an interface that allows us to introduce depth into the created compositions. S3Doodle’s creation is documented, and the experience we had while building it is explained, shedding light on which are the technical decisions behind. We also gather user’s comments from the utilization of the web app. This application serves us as a case study for exploring gestural and stereo interactions, from which we get initial reactions upon which we can provide a better experience for future applications.
