Despite the fact that screen sizes and average screen resolutions have dramatically increased over the past few years, little attention has been paid to the design of web sites for large, high-resolution displays that are now becoming increasingly used both in enterprise and consumer spaces. We present a study of how the visual area of the browser window is(More)
We explore grip and motion sensing to afford new techniques that leverage how users naturally manipulate tablet and stylus devices during pen + touch interaction. We can detect whether the user holds the pen in a writing grip or tucked between his fingers. We can distinguish bare-handed inputs, such as drag and pinch gestures produced by the nonpreferred(More)
With the proliferation and sophistication of digital reading devices, new means to support the task of active reading (AR) have emerged. In this paper, we investigate the use of pen-and-touch-operated tabletops for performing essential processes of AR such as annotating, smooth navigation and rapid searching. We present an application to support these(More)
Combined bimanual pen and touch input on digital tabletops is an appealing interaction paradigm enjoying growing popularity among many HCI researchers. Due to its relative novelty, its properties are still relatively unexplored and many hypotheses emerging from intuition and extrapolations from studies about touch and other pointing devices remain to be(More)
Combined pen and touch input is an interaction paradigm attracting increasing interest both in the research community and recently in industry. In this paper, we illustrate how pen and touch interaction techniques can be leveraged for editing and authoring of presentational documents on digital tabletops. Our system exploits the rich interactional(More)
Magic lenses are popular tools to provide locally altered views of visual data. In this paper, we introduce the concept of BodyLenses, special kinds of magic lenses for wall displays that are mainly controlled by body interactions. After motivating the rationale for body-centric lenses, we present a comprehensive design space of BodyLenses, where we analyse(More)
SmartPublisher is a powerful, all-in-one application for pen-based devices with which users can quickly and intuitively create new documents by reusing individual image and text elements acquired from analogue and/or digital documents. The application is especially targeted at scanning devices with touch screen operating panels or tablet PCs connected to(More)
Despite the fact that average screen size and resolution have dramatically increased, many of today's web sites still do not scale well in larger viewing contexts. The upcoming HTML5 and CSS3 standards propose features that can be used to build more flexible web page layouts, but their potential to accommodate a wider range of display environments is(More)
We present an ongoing effort to design and implement a prototype system for pen and touch-operated digital workdesks supporting the activity of document creation. Our application exploits asymmetric bimanual gestures to perform common document editing operations including element manipulations, text input, clipart retrieval and insertion in a mostly direct(More)
In this work, we introduce and propose a preliminary realisation of a concept to enhance live multimedia presentations, where presenters are directly integrated in their presentation content as interactive avatars. Using multimodal input, especially body gestures, presenters control those embedded avatars through which they can interact with the virtual(More)
