Abstract

Public displays are becoming increasingly interactive but we still need better programming tools that take the burden of adding interaction features to display applications. In this paper, we present a toolkit for web-based, remote, direct manipulation interaction with public display applications. Our toolkit provides high-level controls such as joystick, text input, and multi-touch cursor events, allowing programmers to focus on the interaction experience of the application.
