MobiSweep: Exploring Spatial Design Ideation Using a Smartphone as a Hand-held Reference Plane

In this paper, we explore quick 3D shape composition during early-phase spatial design ideation. Our approach is to re-purpose a smartphone as a hand-held reference plane for creating, modifying, and manipulating 3D sweep surfaces. We implemented MobiSweep, a...
Extracting Hand Grasp & Motion for Intent Expression in Mid-Air Shape Deformation: A Concrete & Iterative Exploration through a Virtual Pottery Application

Extracting Hand Grasp & Motion for Intent Expression in Mid-Air Shape Deformation: A Concrete & Iterative Exploration through a Virtual Pottery Application

We describe the iterative design and evaluation of a geometric interaction technique for bare-hand mid-air virtual pottery. We model the shaping of a pot as a gradual and progressive convergence of the pot-profile to the shape of the user’s hand represented as a...
