We describe the design of and experience with PointRight, a peer-to-peer
pointer and keyboard redirection system that operates in multi-machine,
multi-user environments. PointRight employs a geometric model for redirecting
input across screens driven by multiple independent machines and operating
systems. It was created for interactive workspaces that include large, shared
displays and individual laptops, but is a general tool that supports many
different configurations and modes of use. Although previous systems have
provided for re-routing pointer and keyboard control, in this paper we present
a more general and flexible system, along with an analysis of the types of
re-binding that must be handled by any pointer redirection system This paper
describes the system, the ways in which it has been used, and the lessons that
have been learned from its use over the last two years.

This paper describes new interaction techniques for direct pen-based
interaction on the Interactive Mural, a large (6'x3.5') high resolution (64
dpi) display. They have been tested in a digital brainstorming tool that has
been used by groups of professional product designers. Our "interactive wall"
metaphor for interaction has been guided by several goals: to support both
free-hand sketching and high-resolution materials, such as images, 3D models
and GUI application windows; to present a visual appearance that does not
clutter the content with control devices; and to support fluid interaction,
which minimizes the amount of attention demanded and interruption due to the
mechanics of the interface. We have adapted and extended techniques that were
developed for electronic whiteboards and generalized the use of the FlowMenu to
execute a wide variety of actions in a single pen stroke, While these
techniques were designed for a brainstorming tool, they are very general and
can be used in a wide variety of application domains using interactive

Traditional database query systems allow users to construct complicated database queries from specialized database language primitives. While powerful and expressive, such systems are not easy to use, especially for browsing or exploring the data. Information visualization systems address this problem by providing graphical presentations of the data and direct manipulation tools for exploring the data. Recent work has reported the value of dynamic queries coupled with two-dimensional data representations for progressive refinement of user queries. However, the queries generated by these systems are limited to conjunctions of global ranges of parameter values. In this paper, we extend dynamic queries by encoding each operand of the query as a Magic Lens filter. Compound queries can be constructed by overlapping the lenses. Each lens includes a slider and a set of buttons to control the value of the filter function and to define the composition operation generated by overlapping the lenses. We demonstrate a system that supports multiple, simultaneous, general, real-valued queries on databases with incomplete data, while maintaining the simple visual interface of dynamic query systems.

Stone, Maureen C., Fishkin, Ken and Bier, Eric A. (1994): The Movable Filter as a User Interface Tool. In: Adelson, Beth, Dumais, Susan and Olson, Judith S. (eds.)

Magic Lens filters are a new user interface tool that combine an arbitrarily-shaped region with an operator that changes the view of objects viewed through that region. These tools can be interactively positioned over on-screen applications much as a magnifying glass is moved over a newspaper. They can be used to help the user understand various types of information, from text documents to scientific visualizations. Because these filters are movable and apply to only part of the screen, they have a number of advantages over traditional window-wide viewing modes: they employ an attractive metaphor based on physical lenses, show a modified view in the context of the original view, limit clutter to a small region, allow easy construction of visual macros and provide a uniform paradigm that can be extended across different types of information and applications. This paper describes these advantages in more detail and illustrates them with examples of magic lens filters in use over a variety of applications.

Bier, Eric A., Stone, Maureen C., Fishkin, Ken, Buxton, Bill and Baudel, Thomas (1994): A Taxonomy of See-Through Tools. In: Adelson, Beth, Dumais, Susan and Olson, Judith S. (eds.) Proceedings of the ACM CHI 94 Human Factors in Computing Systems Conference April 24-28, 1994, Boston, Massachusetts. pp. 358-364. Available online
In current interfaces, users select objects, apply operations, and change viewing parameters in distinct steps that require switching attention among several screen areas. Our See-Through Interface software reduces steps by locating tools on a transparent sheet that can be moved over applications with one hand using a blackball, while the other hand controls a mouse cursor. The user clicks through a tool onto application objects, simultaneously selecting an operation and an operand. Tools may include graphical filters that display a customized view of application objects. Compared to traditional interactors, these tools save steps, require no permanent screen space, reduce temporal modes, apply to multiple applications, and facilitate customization. This paper presents a taxonomy of see-through tools that considers variations in each of the steps they perform. As examples, we describe particular see-through tools that perform graphical editing and text editing operations.
