Haptic Techniques for Media Control (12 Oct 2001)
This talk will describe a set of techniques for haptically manipulating digital media such as video, audio, voicemail and computer graphics, utilizing virtual mediating dynamic models based on intuitive physical metaphors. These techniques were developed over several years at Interval Research's Haptics Laboratory.

Most of these systems were implemented on a collection of single axis actuated displays (knobs and sliders), equipped with orthogonal force sensing to enhance their expressive potential. By focusing on continuous interaction through an actuated device rather than discrete button and key presses, we believe we have created a simple yet powerful set of tools that leverage physical intuition and reduce the complexity of interacting with media.
