An increase number of gesture sensors and AR(augmented reality) displays are emerging these years. There are more and more study working on spatial interaction. In this work, we focus on evaluating the feasibility of hand-based interaction designed for AR glasses to do basic manipulation on 3D virtual objects in AR applications with current interaction technology. We design a user study with 10 volunteers to discuss whether and how to use natural user interfaces like gestures, with the help of 3D menus, to finish the tasks of manipulating AR scenes. The interface including 3D menus presents the advantages of usability and merits of intuition; However, it also exposes some issues like ergonomic discomfort and limitation like imprecise input. So our results indicate the kind of interactive device and technology are valuable in natural interaction without extra knowledge, though they are limited in serious applications now.
