MarkPad: Augmenting Touchpads for Command Selection

論文URL:http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=3025453.3025486

論文アブストラクト:We present MarkPad, a novel interaction technique taking advantage of the touchpad. MarkPad allows creating a large number of size-dependent gestural shortcuts that can be spatially organized as desired by the user. It relies on the idea of using visual or tactile marks on the touchpad or a combination of them. Gestures start from a mark on the border and end on another mark anywhere. MarkPad does not conflict with standard interactions and provides a novice mode that acts as a rehearsal of the expert mode. A first study showed that an accuracy of 95% could be achieved for a dense configuration of tactile and/or visual marks allowing many gestures. Performance was 5% lower in a second study where the marks were only on the borders. A last study showed that borders are rarely used, even when the users are unaware of the technique. Finally, we present a working prototype and briefly report on how it was used by two users for a few months.

日本語のまとめ:

タッチパッドを利用したホットキーの提案。タッチパッドを小領域に分割し,ある領域から別の領域へマウスを操作することで登録したソフトが起動する。視覚と触覚のシートを用いることで95%の精度,タッチパッドの中央のシートをなくすと精度が下がる。
