We present DRAGON, a direct manipulation interaction technique for frame-accurate navigation in video scenes. This technique benefits tasks such as professional and amateur video editing, review of sports footage, and forensic analysis of video scenes. By directly dragging objects in the scene along their movement trajectory, DRAGON enables users to quickly(More)
Modern presentation software is still built around interaction metaphors adapted from traditional slide projectors. We provide an analysis of the problems in this application genre that presentation authors face and present Fly, a presentation tool that is based on the idea of planar information structures. Inspired by the natural human thought processes of(More)
We introduce MudPad, a system capable of localized active haptic feedback on multitouch screens. We use an array of electromagnets combined with an overlay containing magnetorheological (MR) fluid to actuate a tablet-sized area. As MudPad has a very low reaction time it is able to produce instant multi-point feedback for multitouch input, ranging from(More)
We present Stacksplorer, a new tool to support source code navigation and comprehension. Stacksplorer computes the call graph of a given piece of code, visualizes relevant parts of it, and allows developers to interactively traverse it. This augments the traditional code editor by offering an additional layer of navigation. Stacksplorer is particularly(More)
Most presentation software uses the slide deck metaphor to create visual presentation support. Recently, canvas presentation tools such as Fly or Prezi have begun to use a zoomable free-form canvas to arrange information instead. While their effect on authoring presentations has been evaluated previously, we studied how they impact the audience. In a(More)
Understanding source code is crucial for successful software maintenance, and navigating the call graph is especially helpful to understand source code [12]. We compared maintenance performance across four different development environments: an IDE without any call graph exploration tool, a Call Hierarchy tool as found in Eclipse, and the tools Stacksplorer(More)
To thoroughly comprehend application behavior, programmers need to understand the interactions of objects at runtime. Today, these interactions are often poorly visualized in common IDEs except during debugging. Stacksplorer allows visualizing and traversing potential call stacks in an application even when it is not running by showing callers and called(More)
We present Pinstripe, a textile user interface element for eyes-free, continuous value input on smart garments that uses pinching and rolling a piece of cloth between your fingers. The input granularity can be controlled in a natural way by varying the amount of cloth pinched. Pinstripe input elements physically consist of fields of parallel conductive(More)
Following advances in commodity hardware and computing power, interactive conducting systems have grown in complexity and capability. Modern conducting systems incorporate research from a variety of disciplines, from motion tracking, to gesture recognition and interpretation, to digital signal processing. Frameworks have emerged in recent years to enable(More)
In this work we present a hardware prototype that uses bending gestures as input for a mobile device and experimental setups that compare possible gestures with other, more traditional input methods in mobile computing. These will eventually result in guidelines for researchers and designers how to build bendable devices and show new interaction metaphors(More)
