Real-World Graphical User Interfaces
Although the age of information appliances is getting close, current remote control devices are too awkward, and we cannot control sophisticated equipments without using graphical computer terminals. We propose a new interaction technique called the Real-world GUI, where users can control real-world appliances just like performing GUI operations on graphical computer terminals, using a new input device called the FieldMouse. FieldMouse is a device which consists of an ID recognizer and a motion sensing device. Using a FieldMouse, various GUI tools like buttons, menus, sliders, and others can be used on any surface and objects, just like using a mouse on a desktop computer. Users can control or program various information appliances as easily as performing GUI operations on graphical computer terminals.
