Interactive palimpsests

Fishenden, J (2014) Interactive palimpsests. In: IEEE SOSE 2014, 8th International Symposium On Service-oriented System Engineering, 7 - 10 April 2014, St. Catherine's College, Oxford University, Oxford.


This paper discusses the development of a prototype human-computer interaction (HCI) environment for the user-led exploration of time and place. It draws on earlier research to develop user interaction techniques using Kinect for Windows and the Kinect SDK. Two specific visual techniques are applied - a lens and a slider - for gesture-based manipulation of content, supported by aural commands that facilitate simplified switching between techniques. Code samples are included to illustrate the development and realisation of the techniques and their reapplication using Kinect.
