We present Force Push, a hyper-natural gesture-to-action mapping for object manipulation in virtual reality (VR). It maps hand gestures derived from human-human interaction to physics-driven movement of an object and uses expressive features of gestures to enhance controllability. An initial user study shows both the performance and broader user experience qualities of Force Push as compared to a traditional direct control mapping.
