- While working on large tabletop interfaces, reaching and
manipulating objects beyond the physical reach of a user
can be considerably vexing. In order to reach such an object,
a user may have to physically move to the object’s location.
Alternatively, a user could attempt to reach for the object
from his/her current location, but the territory of other users
may become obstructed as a result. We propose a multitouch
interaction technique which enables users to easily
select and manipulate objects that are beyond their physical
reach. Our technique provides direct visual feedback to
users, which allows them to be aware of their current active
location. Using a controllable “interactive grabber” (IGrabber)
as a virtual hand extension, users can reach and
manipulate any object from their current location.
