Tangible NURBS-curve manipulation techniques using graspable handles on a large display
This paper presents tangible interaction techniques for fine-tuning one-to-one scale NURBS curves on a large display for automotive design. We developed a new graspable handle with a transparent groove that allows designers to manipulate virtual curves on a display screen directly. The use of the proposed handle leads naturally to a rich vocabulary of terms describing interaction techniques that reflect existing shape-styling methods. A user test raised various issues related to the graspable user interface, two-handed input, and large-display interaction. Categories and Subject Descriptors: H.5.2 [User Interfaces]: Input devices and strategies, Interaction styles; I.3.6 [Methodology and Techniques]: Interaction Techniques; I.3.5 [Computational Geometry and Object Modeling]: Splines; J.6 [Computer-Aided Engineering]: Computer-aided design (CAD) Additional Keywords and Phrases: Automotive design, NURBS-curve manipulation, large display, graspable handle, graspable user interface, two-h...
