ForceExtension: Extending isotonic position-controlled multi-touch gestures with rate-controlled force sensing for 3D manipulation

Jia Wang, Robert W. Lindeman
2013 2013 IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces (3DUI)  
The first approach, context-force extension, tracks the most recent position-control movement as the context and combines it with the force input as an isometric rate-controlled extension.  ...  In this paper we propose two novel approaches for utilizing this extra dimension of input to extend the effect range of position controlled multi-touch gestures.  ...  Previous studies comparing a mouse and a finger-controlled isometric joystick (the IBM TrackPoint) revealed the movement microstructure of both devices and concluded that the random variations in the velocity  ...

NaviPoint

Kiyokuni Kawachiya, Hiroshi Ishikawa
1998 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '98  
with an overhead of less than 50% on the usual "mouse and scroll bar" method  ...  In this paper, several existing methods are first introduced and compared from the viewpoint of their applicability in a mobile environment.  ...  With isometric joystick-type input devices like Track-Point, it is said, fine control is diicult and it takes time to point to a small target [l 11.  ...

Sensing through structure

Ronit Slyper, Ivan Poupyrev, Jessica Hodgins
2011 Proceedings of the fifth international conference on Tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction - TEI '11  
Humans physically interact with computers using numerous devices with numerous input methods: mouse, keyboard, styluses, toys, game controllers, appliances, movement sensors, standard cameras, depth cameras  ...  We explore and visualize how a material reacts under manipulation, and harness the material's properties to design new movement sensors. Two benefits spring out of this approach.  ...  An artist's workflow might have one hand on the mouse and one on our device, using the x-y motion and scroll wheel of the mouse to position and scale the effects of our device, and the mouse click to capture  ...

Goal Crossing with Mice and Trackballs for People with Motor Impairments

Jacob O. Wobbrock, Krzysztof Z. Gajos
2008 ACM Transactions on Accessible Computing  
We also present path analyses and an examination of submovement velocity, acceleration, and jerk (the change in acceleration over time).  ...  In goal crossing, targets are boundaries that are simply crossed by the mouse cursor. Thus, goal crossing avoids the two aforementioned problems.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors gratefully acknowledge the following people (in alphabetical order): Pradipta Biswas, Duen Horng Chau, Dan Comden, Mark Harniss, Curt Johnson, Kurt L. Johnson, Shaun K.  ...

Speed/accuracy trade-offs in target-directed movements

R Plamondon, A M Alimi
1997 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Data from human movement literature are reanalyzed and reinterpreted in the context of the new theory.  ...  This law not only describes velocity profiles almost perfectly, it also predicts the kinematic properties of simple rapid movements and provides a consistent framework for the analysis of different types  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I would like to thank Wacef Guerfali, research assistant at Scribens Laboratory, for his kind help in the numerous computer simulations and the preparation of Figures R1, R2 , R5, R6,  ...

Speed/accuracy trade-offs in target-directed movements

Réjean Plamondon, Adel M. Alimi
1997 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
Abstract: Fitts' law and the ⌬⌳ model are "weak" theories of motor control because they are limited to the kinematic aspects of movement and do not capture its essential dynamic nature.  ...  Data from human movement literature are reanalyzed and reinterpreted in the context of the new theory.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I would like to thank Wacef Guerfali, research assistant at Scribens Laboratory, for his kind help in the numerous computer simulations and the preparation of Figures R1, R2 , R5, R6,  ...

Sensing Through Structure

Ronit Slyper
2018
We explore and visualize how a material reacts under manipulation, and harness the material's properties to design new movement sensors. Two benefits spring out of this approach.  ...  We study squishable, conformable materials such as foam and silicone, and create a vocabulary of unit structures (shaped cuts in the material) for harnessing patterns of compression/tension to capture  ...  An artist's workflow might have one hand on the mouse and one on our device, using the x-y motion and scroll wheel of the mouse to position and scale the effects of our device, and the mouse click to capture  ...
