With the increasing distribution of multi-touch capable devices multi-touch interaction becomes more and more ubiquitous. Especially the interaction with complex data (e.g. medical or geographical data), which until today mostly rely on mice and keyboard input or intense instrumentation, can benefit from this development. Moreover current technological trends in 3D stereoscopic displays are promising because they allow a better presence by providing an additional depth cue. Multi-touch interaction offers new ways to deal with 3D interaction allowing a high degree of freedom (DOF) without instrumenting the user. This talk will discuss multi-touch and gestural 3D interaction on and above interactive surfaces and explore the design space of interaction with stereoscopic data.
