Abstract

A large multi-touch tabletop has remote areas that the users might not touch by their hands. This forces users to move around the tabletop. In this paper, we present a novel remote control technique which we call HandyScope. This technique allows users to manipulate those remote areas. Moreover, users can move an object between the nearby area and the remote areas using a widget. In addition, users can precisely point a remote area quickly because this system includes our proposed control-display ratio changing system. To evaluate the performance of HandyScope, we compared HandyScope with direct touch manipulation. The results show that HandyScope is significantly faster in selection.
