Abstract

Interactive tabletops have been proven to be very suitable setups for collaborative work especially in combination with mobile devices. Further on, many application scenarios require the visualization of 3D data. Therefore we present multimodal 3D interaction techniques for tabletops that allow simultaneous control of six degrees of freedom using sensor equipped mobile devices. In two early user studies we compared multitouch, tangible interaction and sensor equipped smartphones in order to start a User Centered Design process. We got important results regarding effectiveness, intuitiveness and user experience. Most notably we figured out that mobile devices equipped with acceleration sensors are very suitable for 3D rotation tasks.
