ZELASTO – Interaktion mit komplexen Daten mittels Zoomable User Interfaces auf Elastischen Oberflächen

Elastic displays empower users to interact naturally through pushing and pulling, folding and twisting. While this kind of interaction is not as precise as on other devices, it utilizes interaction metaphors which are easy to learn and understand. I have been involved in developing elastic displays since 2012 at the Chair of Media Design at Technische Universität Dresden. This research project investigates application scenarios involving complex data based on zoomable user interfaces.
