CTAT: Tilt-and-Tap Across Devices

  title={CTAT: Tilt-and-Tap Across Devices},
  author={Linda Di Geronimo and Maria Husmann and Abhimanyu Patel and Can Tuerk and Moira C. Norrie},
Motion gestures have been proposed as an interaction para-digm for pairing, and sharing data between, mobile devices. They have also been used for interaction with large screens such as semi-public displays where a mobile phone can be used as a form of remote control in an eyes-free manner. Yet, so far, little attention has been paid to their potential use in cross-device web applications. We therefore decided to develop a framework that would support investigations into the use of a… 
Continuous tilting interaction techniques on mobile devices for controlling public displays
A framework that supports the rapid development of web-based applications and enables experimentation with a variety of techniques for continuous tilting interactions is designed and a study of three different motion gestures that can be used to control the cursor on a remote screen is presented.
Rapid Development of Web Applications that use Tilting Interactions in Single and Multi-Device Scenarios
This demo not only shows a range of applications that have been developed using the Tilt-and-Tap andCTAT frameworks, but also the frameworks in action by demonstrating the steps involved in developing and adapting applications.
End-user web development tool for tilting interactions
WP-TAT, a WordPress plugin that allows tilt-and-touch gestures to be easily integrated into WordPress websites without any programming, is developed and its potential is shown by describing various demonstrator applications and reporting on a preliminary user study.
SMAC: A Simplified Model of Attention and Capture in Multi-Device Desk-Centric Environments
This work explores the device ecologies used in desk-centric environments and complies with the insights observed into SMAC, a simplified model of attention and capture that emphasizes the role of user-device proxemics, as mediated by hand placement, gaze, and relative body orientation, as well as inter-device proxies.
Surveying personal device ecosystems with cross-device applications in mind
A survey carried out using an online questionnaire and the most significant findings that should be taken into account in cross-device scenarios are discussed.
Exploring and Understanding the Role of Workshop Environments in Personal Fabrication Processes
This work identifies how such spaces could harness the rich practices and eliminate the challenges found with workshops today and discusses the technical innovations and philosophical questions that hybrid workshops will pose to the future of personal fabrication.
Distributed Web browsing: supporting frequent uses and opportunistic requirements
The idea is to empower end users to apply an augmentation layer over existing Web applications, considering both frequent use and opportunistic DUI requirements, and present the architecture and a prototype tool supporting this approach.
Towards end-user development of distributed user interfaces
A detailed overview of existing DUI approaches is provided and an approach where users can author their customised user interfaces based on a hypermedia metamodel and the concept of active components is proposed.
Workshops for the 21st Century: Exploring the Role of Environments in Personal Fabrication Processes
Growing interest in personal fabrication has resulted in many ways to ideate, design, and prototype, in addition to studies of who a maker is and the challenges they face. Less attention, however,


Tilt-and-Tap: Framework to Support Motion-Based Web Interaction Techniques
This work introduces a framework that supports the rapid development of web applications featuring motion-based interaction, and focuses on the combination of tilting and tapping as a means of interaction since this allows users to easily interact without changing their hand position.
User-defined gestures for connecting mobile phones, public displays, and tabletops
The results suggest that phone gestures have the potential to be easily understood by end users and that certain device configurations and activities may be well suited for gesture control.
Scroll, tilt or move it: using mobile phones to continuously control pointers on large public displays
A comparative evaluation of three different interaction techniques for continuous control of a pointer located on a remote display using a mobile phone revealed that while Move and Tilt can be faster, they also introduce higher error rates for selection tasks.
Natural throw and tilt interaction between mobile phones and distant displays
This research work addresses the seamless combination of sensor-enabled phones with large displays with an intuitive basic set of tilt gestures introduced for a stepwise or continuous interaction with both mobile applications and distant user interfaces by utilizing the handheld as a remote control.
Comparing pointing techniques for grasping hands on tablets
An experiment to compare four pointing techniques on both the front and back of the devices while it was held in landscape format concludes that a miniaturized interaction area is a viable alternative to direct touch especially on the backside of tablet devices.
PointerPhone: Using Mobile Phones for Direct Pointing Interactions with Remote Displays
This paper presents the concept and design space of PointerPhone which enables users to directly point at objects on a remote screen with their mobile phone and interact with them in a natural and seamless way and provides design implications for application designs.
Gesture connect: facilitating tangible interaction with a flick of the wrist
The Gesture Connect system streamlines the process of connecting to and/or controlling objects from a user's personal mobile device by combining contact-based connections with gesture-based selection, greatly simplifying the common case.
JerkTilts: using accelerometers for eight-choice selection on mobile devices
JerkTilts, quick back-and-forth gestures that combine device pitch and roll, may serve as gestural self-delimited shortcuts for activating commands that only depend on device acceleration and rely on a parallel and independent input channel.
Sensor synaesthesia: touch in motion, and motion in touch
This work explores techniques for hand-held devices that leverage the multimodal combination of touch and motion, and considers the reverse perspective, that of motion-enhanced touch, which uses motion sensors to probe what happens underneath the surface of touch.
Chucking: A One-Handed Document Sharing Technique
Extensions to Chucking are introduced, such as Chuck-Back, Chuck-and-Rotate, and Chuck- and-Place that constitute a suite of techniques that facilitate a large range of document sharing interactions between private mobile devices and public displays.
