Rapidly Prototyping Single Display Groupware through the SDGToolkit (04 Nov 2003)
Our solution is the SDGToolkit, a toolkit for rapidly prototyping SDG. SDGToolkit automatically captures and manages multiple mice and keyboards, and presents them to the programmer as uniquely identified input events relative to either the whole screen or a particular window. It transparently provides multiple cursors, one for each mouse. To handle orientation issues for tabletop displays (i.e., people seated across from one another), programmers can specify a participant's seating angle, which automatically rotates the cursor and translates input coordinates so the mouse behaves correctly.
