Ng, Albert, Lepinski, Julian, Wigdor, Daniel, Sanders, Steven and Dietz, Paul (2012): Designing for low-latency direct-touch input. In: Proceedings of the 2012 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2012. pp. 453-464. Available online

Software designed for direct-touch interfaces often utilize a metaphor of direct physical manipulation of pseudo "real-world" objects. However, current touch systems typically take 50-200ms to update the display in response to a physical touch action. Utilizing a high performance touch demonstrator, subjects were able to experience touch latencies ranging from current levels down to about 1ms. Our tests show that users greatly prefer lower latencies, and noticeable improvement continued well below 10ms. This level of performance is difficult to achieve in commercial computing systems using current technologies. As an alternative, we propose a hybrid system that provides low-fidelity visu-al feedback immediately, followed by high-fidelity visuals at standard levels of latency.

(Vaucelle), A Cati N. Boulanger, Dietz, Paul and Bathiche, Steven (2011): Scopemate: a tracking inspection microscope. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 3-4. Available online

We propose a new interaction mechanism for inspection microscopy. The novel input device combines an optically augmented webcam with a head tracker. A head tracker controls the inspection angle of a webcam fitted with appropriate microscope optics. This allows an operator the full use of their hands while intuitively looking at the work area from different perspectives.

Boulanger, Cati, Dietz, Paul and Bathiche, Steven (2011): Scopemate: a robotic microscope. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 63-64. Available online

Scopemate is a robotic microscope that tracks the user for inspection microscopy. The novel input device combines an optically augmented webcam with a head tracker. A head tracker controls the inspection angle of a webcam fitted with appropriate microscope optics. This allows an operator the full use of their hands while intuitively looking at the work area from different perspectives.

Dietz, Paul and Leigh, Darren (2001): DiamondTouch: a multi-user touch technology. In: Marks, Joe and Mynatt, Elizabeth D. (eds.) Proceedings of the 14th annual ACM symposium on User interface software and technology November 11 - 14, 2001, Orlando, Florida. pp. 219-226. Available online

A technique for creating a touch-sensitive input device is proposed which allows multiple, simultaneous users to interact in an intuitive fashion. Touch location information is determined independently for each user, allowing each touch on a common surface to be associated with a particular user. The surface generates location dependent, modulated electric fields which are capacitively coupled through the users to receivers installed in the work environment. We describe the design of these systems and their applications. Finally, we present results we have obtained with a small prototype device.
