Interaction Techniques for Mobile Devices

Oct 10, 2011

In this talk I would like to present our current work on sensor-based interaction techniques for mobile devices. I would like to focus two projects in particular. The first one investigates the usefulness of visual context in handheld augmented map interfaces. The second one shows interaction concepts and application ideas for pressure-sensitive two-sided multitouch interaction. Regarding handheld augmented map interfaces I am going to present our approach of augmenting large-scale paper maps with dynamic content using the magic lens metaphor. In an eye-tracking study we investigated the effectiveness of visual context beyond the mobile device display, by comparing a dynamic peephole interface (without visual context beyond the device display) to a magic lens interface (with video see-through augmentation of external visual context). Regarding pressure-sensitive multitouch input I am going to show a number of application possibilities for handheld pressure input, such as pressure-based fisheye views and 3D object manipulation. I'll also report a study on the effectiveness of different device poses and pressure mapping functions.
