Holy smartphones and tablets, Batman! Mobile interaction's dynamic Duo
Paper in proceedings, 2013
It is becoming increasingly more common for people to own botha smartphone and a tablet, providing a design opportunity to leverage the combination of these two formfactors. Our work aims to explore this by: a) defining the design space of distributed input and output solutions that rely on and benefit from phone-tablet collaboration, both physically and digitally; andb) reveal the idiosyncrasies of each particular device combination via interactive prototypes. Our research provides actionable insight in this emerging area by defining a design space, suggesting a developer's framework and implementing prototypical applicationsin such areas as distributed information display, distributed control and various configurations of these. For each of these, we present several example techniques and demonstrate an application that combinessuch techniques. Copyright 2013 ACM.
