Page-Flipping Detection and Information Presentation for Implicit Interaction with a Book

  title={Page-Flipping Detection and Information Presentation for Implicit Interaction with a Book},
  author={Kaori Fujinami and Nobuhiro Inagawa},
In this article, we propose an augmented book cover and a bookmark as means for implicit interaction with a book. [] Key Method Accumulation of the events is utilized by an application, a Virtual Illustration System, to estimate the current page number. Finally, the number identifies corresponding multimedia contents. Thus, a user reads a book in an ordinal way, and at the same time, her context is implicitly captured and given to an application as an input. The performance of page-flipping detection and the…
