Tilt Menu: Using the 3D Orientation Information of Pen Devices to Extend the Selection Capability of Pen-Based User Interfaces
This paper present a new technique called 'Tilt Menu' for better extending selection capabilities of pen-based interfaces. The Tilt Menu is implemented by using 3D orientation information of pen devices while performing selection tasks. The Tilt Menu has the potential to aid traditional one-handed techniques as it simultaneously generates the secondary input (e.g., a command or parameter selection) while drawing/interacting with a pen tip without having to use the second hand or another device. Two experiments are conducted to explore the performance of the Tilt Menu.
