Fluid Interaction for High Resolution Wall-size Displays (01 Jun 2001)
This research explores how to bridge the gap between the power provided by current desktop computer interfaces and the fluid use of whiteboards and pin-boards. Observing fluid expert interactions in our everyday life, such as driving a car or playing a violin, we have designed, and built a fluid interaction framework which encourages gesture memory, reduces the need for dialog with the user, and provides a scoping mechanism for modes. Together, these features progressively make the cognitive load of using the interface disappear. The user is now free to focus on other tasks the same way one can drive a car while conversing with a passenger.
