▾ ACADEMIC RESEARCH ▾


imMatch: Fast Stitching Gestures for Multiple Heterogeneous Multi-touch Surfaces.

Paper in Submission.

My Role in this project – Co-Concept, Co-Author, Programing Support, Design & Video In this research, we proposed several gestures, tried to find a better way to operate the attachment of multiple multitouch displays. Also, we developed a HTML5 software development kit (SDK) which would make it easier to explore the possibility of multiple multitouch display applications.

Detail Four gestures were designed and evaluated; Swipe, Pinch, Slide and Circle gestures. Gestures could be used to estimate dot per inch (DPI) of the stitched devices which DPI information is not able to obtain. When devices were stitched, their margins would not able to detect touch events. Seamless gestures were developed to make the cross-devices multi-touch gesture working like one original multi-touch surface. Several applications were developed and introduced to demonstrate the private / public mode switching by using stitching gesture.

Beyond the surface: 3D interactions for tabletop systems. 2010 — Academic, Interactive, Publication The proposed techniques enable a collaborative multi-display multi-touch tabletop system. We also present three interactive tools: i-m-View, i-m-Lamp, and i-m-Flashlight, which consist of a mobile tablet and projectors that users can freely interact with beyond the main display surface.

My Role in this project – Co-Author, Co-Concept & Video


Intro Current tabletop systems are designed to sense 2D interactions taken place on the tabletop surface, such as finger touches and tangible objects. The ability to interact above the tabletop surface makes it possible to support 3D interactions. For example, an architect can examine a 2D blueprint of a building shown on the tabletop display while inspecting 3D views of the building by moving a mobile display above the tabletop. Recent approaches to localize objects in 3D requires visible markers or the use of embedded sensors [Song et al. 2009]. The use of visible markers often interferes with the content users are focusing on, limiting its usefulness and applicability.
