Rendl, Christian, Greindl, Patrick, Haller, Michael, Zirkl, Martin, Stadlober, Barbara and Hartmann, Paul (2012): PyzoFlex: printed piezoelectric pressure sensing foil. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 509-518. Available online

Ferroelectric material supports both pyro- and piezoelectric effects that can be used for sensing pressures on large, bended surfaces. We present PyzoFlex, a pressure-sensing input device that is based on a ferroelectric material. It is constructed with a sandwich structure of four layers that can be printed easily on any material. We use this material in combination with a high-resolution Anoto-sensing foil to support both hand and pen input tracking. The foil is bendable, energy-efficient, and it can be produced in a printing process. Even a hovering mode is feasible due to its pyroelectric effect. In this paper, we introduce this novel input technology and discuss its benefits and limitations.

Seifried, Thomas, Haller, Michael, Scott, Stacey D., Perteneder, Florian, Rendl, Christian, Sakamoto, Daisuke and Inami, Masahiko (2009): CRISTAL: a collaborative home media and device controller based on a multi-touch display. In: Proceedings of the 2009 ACM International Conference on Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces 2009. pp. 33-40. Available online

While most homes are inherently social places, existing devices designed to control consumer electronics typically only support single user interaction. Further, as the number of consumer electronics in modern homes increases, people are often forced to switch between many controllers to interact with these devices. To simplify interaction with these devices and to enable more collaborative forms of device control, we propose an integrated remote control system, called CRISTAL (Control of Remotely Interfaced Systems using Touch-based Actions in Living spaces). CRISTAL enables people to control a wide variety of digital devices from a centralized, interactive tabletop system that provides an intuitive, gesture-based interface that enables multiple users to control home media devices through a virtually augmented video image of the surrounding environment. A preliminary user study of the CRISTAL system is presented, along with a discussion of future research directions.
