Abstract

Large multi-touch tabletops are useful for collocated collaborative work involving multiple users. However, applying traditional WIMP interfaces to tabletops causes problems where users cannot reach GUI elements, such as icons or buttons, on the opposite side with their hands, and they sometimes have difficulty in reading the content of GUI elements because their view does not match the orientation of the content. To solve these problems, we present HandyWidgets that are widgets localized around users' hands. The widgets are quickly invoked by a bimanual multi-touch gesture which we call "pull-out". This gesture also allows users to adjust the position, orientation, and size of the widgets, in a continuous manner after invocation.
