Duet: Exploring Joint Interactions on a Smart Phone and a Smart Watch (5:21 min.)

Abstract

The emergence of smart devices (e.g., smart watches and smart eyewear) is redefining mobile interaction from the solo performance of a smart phone, to a symphony of multiple devices. In this paper, we present Duet – an interactive system that explores a design space of interactions between a smart phone and a smart watch. Based on the devices’ spatial configurations, Duet coordinates their motion and touch input, and extends their visual and tactile output to one another. This allows us to transform the watch into an active element that enhances a wide range of phone-based interactive tasks, and enables a new class of multi-device gestures and sensing techniques. A technical evaluation shows the accuracy of these gestures and sensing techniques, and a subjective study on the Duet system provides insights, observations, and guidance for future work.

  • Multi-touch

    Multi-touch platforms have recently emerged into the consumer markets, and offer a rich and captivating interaction experience. At Autodesk Research we are investigating new user interface designs and interaction techniques for multi-touch systems, and exploring how existing software technologies can leverage the use of such systems.

  • Novel Input & Output

    The nature and quality of interaction can be dramatically affected by both the input sensing capabilities and output display characteristics of an interactive system. We are interested in exploring novel input and output configurations to help guide and inform future system designs that may be deployed on a wider scale as these technologies mature.
