The increasing use of remote pointing devices in various application domains is fostering the adoption of pointing enhancement techniques which are aimed at counterbalancing the shortcomings of desk-free interaction. This paper describes the strengths and weaknesses of existing methods for ray pointing facilitation, and presents a refinement of Smoothed Pointing, an auto-calibrating velocity-oriented precision enhancing technique. Furthermore, the paper discusses the results of a user study… Expand
Analysis and comparison of target assistance techniques for relative ray-cast pointing
TLDR
These studies are the first to comprehensively explore the optimization, performance, and perceptibility of target assistance techniques for relative ray-casting and provide designers with clear guidelines about what methods to use, how to configure the techniques, and what effects can be expected from their use.

An investigation of pointing postures in a 3D stereoscopic environment.
TLDR
Future applications involving different pointing techniques should consider both pointing performances and postural effects as a result of pointing task precision requirements and potential postural fatigue. Expand
High-precision pointing on large wall displays using small handheld devices
TLDR
This work investigates high-precision pointing techniques capable of acquiring targets as small as 4 millimeters on a 5.5 meters wide display while leaving up to 93 % of a typical tablet device's screen space available for task-specific widgets. Expand
Investigation and evaluation of pointing modalities for interactive stereoscopic 3D TV
TLDR
Investigation of pointing modalities in the context of stereoscopic 3D television (TV), adopting the ISO 9241-9 standard for multi-directional tapping task, suggests that the virtual laser pointer modality is more advantageous than other modality in terms of user performance and user comfort.

MPP3D: Multi-Precision Pointing using the 3rd Dimension
TLDR
This work proposes MPP3D, which is especially suitable for high-resolution displays and uses two dimensions of hand positioning to move a pointer, and it also uses the third dimension to adjust the precision of the movement. Expand
Mid-Air Pointing on Ultra-Walls
TLDR
This work designed novel pointing techniques that outperform existing techniques in controlled experiments that involve pointing difficulties never tested prior to this work, and discusses the cognitive mechanisms that affect pointing performance with these techniques. Expand
Guidance rays: 3D object selection based on multi-ray in dense scenario
TLDR
A novel 3D selection method is presented, which allows user to perform distal pointing task with disambiguation mechanism depending on user's behavior, and is significantly efficient when selecting small/remote and occluded target. Expand
An Investigation of Leap Motion Based 3D Manipulation Techniques for Use in Egocentric Viewpoint
TLDR
The results show a different level of difficulty perceived by the testers between the two canonical manipulation techniques and a general preference for techniques that prove to be less tiring. Expand
Effects of control-display gain and postural control method on distal pointing performance
TLDR
The experimental results indicated that the wrist-based interactive method is a better interactive method for tasks where pointing speed is the highest priority and the 1.7 CD gain was found to cause significantly higher MT and ER and lower TP and subjective usability rating scores than wrist- and elbow-based pointing.

Motion–Display Gain: A New Control–Display Mapping Reflecting Natural Human Pointing Gesture to Enhance Interaction with Large Displays at a Distance
TLDR
This is an initial attempt to reflect natural human pointing gesture in distal pointing technique, and the developed technique (MD gain) was experimentally proved to be superior to the existing techniques. Expand

Adaptive Pointing - Design and Evaluation of a Precision Enhancing Technique for Absolute Pointing Devices
TLDR
A novel classification scheme is introduced to more clearly discriminate between different approaches to improve pointing performance for absolute input devices by implicitly adapting the Control-Display gain to the current user's needs without violating users' mental model of absolute-device operation.

The tradeoff between spatial jitter and latency in pointing tasks
TLDR
The results indicate that, while latency has a stronger effect on human performance compared to low amounts of spatial jitter, jitter dramatically increases the error rate, roughly inversely proportional to the target size. Expand

A probabilistic approach to modeling two-dimensional pointing
TLDR
The results show that target height has minimal impact on performance when it is larger than the width, but, even when height is greater than width, it can significantly impact movement time. Expand
"Beating" Fitts' law: virtual enhancements for pointing facilitation
TLDR
The survey suggests that while the techniques developed to date are promising, particularly when applied to the selection of single isolated targets, many of them do not scale well to the common situation in graphical user interfaces where multiple targets are located in close proximity. Expand
