Altakrouri, Bashar and Kawsar, Fahim and Kortuem, Gerd (2010) Spin&Swing : Spatial Interaction with Orientation Aware Devices. In: Eighth International Conference on Pervasive Computing (Pervasive 2010), 2010-05-172010-05-20.
We present Spin&Swing, a spatial interaction technique that leverages user’s orientation as an active input to interact with mobile applications. With Spin&Swing, a user can trigger a variety of mobile operations by orienting her spatially aware mobile device with in the sphere around her. In our current prototype this 360° circular orientation is mapped into a temporal dimension enabling users to browse and visualize historical interaction with an application in context. The demo showcases a prototype application where we have utilized this technique using a mobile device to visualize and browse the historical information recorded by a digital memory augmented shoe in a personal travel log application.
