Target selection is a fundamental aspect of interaction and is particularly challenging when targets are moving. We address this problem by introducing a novel selection technique we call Hold which temporarily pauses the content while selection is in progress to provide a static target. By studying users, we evaluate our method against two others for(More)
We present an investigation of two different visualizations of video history: Video Timeline and Video Tiles. Video Timeline extends the commonly employed list-based visualization for navigation history by applying size to indicate heuristics and occupying the full screen with a two-sided timeline. Video Tiles visualizes history items in a grid-based layout(More)
We propose to bring our novel rich media interface called <i>MediaDiver</i> demonstrating our new interaction techniques for viewing and annotating multiple view video. The demonstration allows attendees to experience novel moving target selection methods (called <i>Hold</i> and <i>Chase</i>), new multi-view selection techniques, automated quality of view(More)
We describe a new video interface based on a recorded personal navigation history which provides simple mechanisms to quickly find and watch previously viewed intervals, highlight segments of video the user found interesting and support other video tasks such as crowd-sourced video popularity measures and consumer-level video editing. Our novel history(More)
We propose the use of a personal video navigation history, which records a user’s viewing behaviour, as a basis for casual video editing and sharing. Our novel interaction supports users’ navigation of previously-viewed intervals to construct new videos via simple playlists. The intervals in the history can be individually previewed and searched, filtered(More)
Online video viewing has seen explosive growth, yet simple tools to facilitate navigation and sharing of the large video space have not kept pace. We propose the use of single-video viewing statistics as the basis for a visualization of video called the View Count Record (VCR). Our novel visualization utilizes variable-sized thumbnails to represent the(More)
[1,2a]Benzimidazol-2-yl amidine was synthesized by adding cyclopentanamine to iminoester in ethanol. The structure of amidine 1 was characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 1H-1H NOESY, 13C NMR, DEPT, XHCOR spectra, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential thermal analysis (DTA), differential scanning calorimetry thermograms (DSC), elementary analysis as well as(More)
The DreamThrower is a novel technology that explores virtually creating, throwing and catching dreams. It detects users’ dream state by measuring rapid eye movement (REM). Once the dream state is detected, sound and light stimuli is played to alter the dream. Users report on their dream, and they can send the stimuli that they have used to another person(More)
