Peephole Displays: Pen Interaction on Spatially Aware Handheld Computers (16 May 2003)
With a Peephole Display, you can use both hands together: the hand holding the display can navigate through information, and the hand holding the pen can manipulate that information. Thus, you can navigate and manipulate simultaneously, without interrupting the flow of work. It's also possible to manipulate objects larger than the screen more easily using Peephole techniques. Peephole displays also enable a few totally new kinds of interaction, such as 3-D drag-and-drop.

In this talk, I'll describe and illustrate the Peephole concept, and show a video demonstration of some applications that take advantage of Peephole interaction techniques. I'll also describe the results of a user study to assess the feasibility of these techniques for PDAs, and show some more speculative ideas on future possibilities.
