ToolStone: effective use of the physical manipulation vocabularies of input devices

Rekimoto, J. and Sciammarella, E. 2000. ToolStone: effective use of the physical manipulation vocabularies of input devices. In Proceedings of the 13th Annual ACM Symposium on User interface Software and Technology (San Diego, California, United States, November 06 - 08, 2000). UIST '00. ACM, New York, NY, 109-117.

Abstract: The ToolStone is a cordless, multiple degree-of-freedom
(MDOF) input device that senses physical manipulation of
itself, such as rotating, flipping, or tilting. As an input device
for the non-dominant hand when a bimanual interface is
used, the ToolStone provides several interaction techniques
including a toolpalette selector, and MDOF interactors such
as zooming, 3D rotation, and virtual camera control. In this
paper, we discuss the design principles of input devices that
effectively use a human’s physical manipulation skills, and
describe the system architecture and applications of the Tool-
Stone input device.
