We propose a new data-driven framework for synthesizing hand motion at different emotion levels. Specifically, we first capture high-quality hand motion using VR gloves. The hand motion data is then annotated with the emotion type and a latent space is constructed from the motions to facilitate the motion synthesis process. By interpolating the latent representation of the hand motion, new hand animation with different levels of emotion strength can be generated. Experimental results show that our framework can produce smooth and consistent hand motions at an interactive rate.
