    We investigate camera-based interaction techniques suitable for generating simple, easy-to-use augmented reality applications. All the interaction techniques described are based on using only the camera as input device, so that users can interact with 3D content of the application by gesturing with camera movements. With two test applications, we have identified several camera-based interaction techniques that are intuitive to use and reliable to detect. The test applications are interesting also in their own right, demonstrating technical features such as markerless tracking as well as mobile phone implementation.
