Multi-touch Interaction for Interface Prototyping

  title={Multi-touch Interaction for Interface Prototyping},
  author={Pedro Portela and Mestrado Integrado},
Changes on interaction technologies over the last decades have the potential to mark a paradigm shift from Graphical User Interfaces (GUI), which has been the dominant interaction paradigm for thirty years. These new devices aim to provide a more natural way of interaction, constituting the Natural User Interfaces (NUI), by taking advantage of the skills we have naturally acquired through our experience with the world. The success of multi-touch displays, one of the interfaces that benefit from…

Data Mining Teams: Plataforma Colaborativa para Projetos de Data Mining
The experiments show that the project addresses a major problem and that the approach is appropriate, leading to team work in data mining projects being more fluid, and some problems and limitations of the developed prototype and new features that will be desirable to implement are identified.


Interactive design of multimodal user interfaces
A software architecture that enables the unification of a great variety of very heterogeneous device drivers and special-purpose toolkits in a common interaction library named “Squidy”, which supports the entire development lifecycle of multimodal interaction design, in both industry and research.
Challenges for Designing the User Experience of Multi-touch Interfaces
Eight challenges that need to be considered when designing the user experience of multi-touch interfaces are discussed and the challenges also reveal potential areas for future research in the field ofMulti-touch interaction.
A gestural interaction design model for multi-touch displays
A comprehensive understanding of all possible touch types for touch-sensitive devices is attempted by constructing a design model for touch interaction and clarifying their characteristics, resulting in touch gesture taxonomy.
A language to define multi-touch interactions
A domain-specific language is presented to define multi-touch interaction that hides the low level implementation complexities from application developers, which allows them to focus on designing touch interactions that are natural and meaningful to the application context without worrying about implementation complexities.
Multi-Touch Surfaces: A Technical Guide
This document aims to summarize the knowledge and experience of developers of multi-touch technology who gathered at the Bootcamp on Construction & Implementation of Optical Multi-touch Surfaces at Tabletop 2008 in Amsterdam, and seeks to provide hints and practical advice to people seeking to ``build your own'' multi- touch surface.
Can "touch" get annoying?
The results suggest that touching is an essential part of such an activity and that the compensation strategies people adapt to avoid conflicts may reduce precision of communication and increase the physical strain on the user.
FEATURE"Paper in screen" prototyping: an agile technique to anticipate the mobile experience
This paper introduces a hybrid method of prototyping that utilizes paper and mobile device technology that is both quick to create and agile to use in the early stages of design without the need to implement a fully operational high‐fidelity prototype.
Architecting next-generation user interfaces
This talk will describe how leveraging and mirroring human motor, cognitive, and social abilities and needs can produce interfaces that are both learnable and enabling of high-bandwidth communication between the user and the computer.
Natural user interfaces are not natural
I believe we will look back on 2010 as the year we expanded beyond the mouse and keyboard and started incorporating more natural forms of interaction such as touch, speech, gestures, handwriting, and
Comparing user interaction with low and high fidelity prototypes of tabletop surfaces
It is found that one should be cautious in generalising high-level user interactions from a low towards a high-fidelity prototype, however, the low-f fidelity prototype approach presented proved to be very valuable to generate design ideas concerning both high and low- level user interactions on a multi-touch tabletop.
