Schmidt, Dominik, Seifert, Julian, Rukzio, Enrico and Gellersen, Hans-Werner (2012): A cross-device interaction style for mobiles and surfaces. In: Proceedings of DIS12 Designing Interactive Systems 2012. pp. 318-327. Available online

Natural forms of interaction have evolved for personal devices that we carry with us (mobiles) as well as for shared interactive displays around us (surfaces) but interaction across the two remains cumbersome in practice. We propose a novel cross-device interaction style for mobiles and surfaces that uses the mobile for tangible input on the surface in a stylus-like fashion. Building on the direct manipulation that we can perform on either device, it facilitates fluid and seamless interaction spanning across device boundaries. We provide a characterization of the combined interaction style in terms of input, output, and contextual attributes, and demonstrate its versatility by implementation of a range of novel interaction techniques for mobile devices on interactive surfaces.

Schmidt, Dominik, Molyneaux, David and Cao, Xiang (2012): PICOntrol: using a handheld projector for direct control of physical devices through visible light. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 379-388. Available online

Today's environments are populated with a growing number of electric devices which come in diverse form factors and provide a plethora of functions. However, rich interaction with these devices can become challenging if they need be controlled from a distance, or are too small to accommodate user interfaces on their own. In this work, we explore PICOntrol, a new approach using an off-the-shelf handheld pico projector for direct control of physical devices through visible light. The projected image serves a dual purpose by simultaneously presenting a visible interface to the user, and transmitting embedded control information to inexpensive sensor units integrated with the devices. To use PICOntrol, the user points the handheld projector at a target device, overlays a projected user interface on its sensor unit, and performs various GUI-style or gestural interactions. PICOntrol enables direct, visible, and rich interactions with various physical devices without requiring central infrastructure. We present our prototype implementation as well as explorations of its interaction space through various application examples.

Schmidt, Dominik, Chong, Ming Ki and Gellersen, Hans-Werner (2010): HandsDown: hand-contour-based user identification for interactive surfaces. In: Proceedings of the Sixth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2010. pp. 432-441. Available online

HandsDown is a novel technique for user identification on interactive surfaces. It enables users to access personal data on a shared surface, to associate objects with their identity, and to fluidly customize appearance, content, or functionality of the user interface. To identify, users put down their hand flat on the surface. HandsDown is based on hand contour analysis; neither user instrumentation nor external devices are required for identification. Characteristic features of the hand are initially extracted from images captured by the surface's camera system and then classified using Support Vector Machines (SVM). We present a proof-of-concept implementation and show results of our evaluation which indicates the technique's robustness for user identification within small groups. Additionally, we introduce a set of interaction techniques to illustrate how HandsDown can improve the user experience, and we discuss the design space of such interactions.

Schmidt, Dominik, Chehimi, Fadi, Rukzio, Enrico and Gellersen, Hans-Werner (2010): PhoneTouch: a technique for direct phone interaction on surfaces. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 13-16. Available online

PhoneTouch is a novel technique for integration of mobile phones and interactive surfaces. The technique enables use of phones to select targets on the surface by direct touch, facilitating for instance pick&drop-style transfer of objects between phone and surface. The technique is based on separate detection of phone touch events by the surface, which determines location of the touch, and by the phone, which contributes device identity. The device-level observations are merged based on correlation in time. We describe a proof-of-concept implementation of the technique, using vision for touch detection on the surface (including discrimination of finger versus phone touch) and acceleration features for detection by the phone.

Schmidt, Dominik (2010): Towards personalized surface computing. In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 363-366. Available online

With recent progress in the field of surface computing it becomes foreseeable that interactive surfaces will turn into a commodity in the future, ubiquitously integrated into our everyday environments. At the same time, we can observe a trend towards personal data and whole applications being accessible over the Internet, anytime from anywhere. We envision a future where interactive surfaces surrounding us serve as powerful portals to access these kinds of data and services. In this paper, we contribute two novel interaction techniques supporting parts of this vision: First, HandsDown, a biometric user identification approach based on hand contours and, second, PhoneTouch, a novel technique for using mobile phones in conjunction with interactive surfaces.
