One-handed Interactions on Mobile Devices

Project Description

This project is aimed at designing new and efficient technique for one-handed use of mobile devices. It was recently found that a significant number of mobile device users either use or prefer to use one-hand to interact with their devices. In this project we are investigating the development of numerous one-handed techniques, including systems for selecting one or multiple targets, and document sharing techniques to couple large devices and mobile systems.
