Don Hopkins is an artist and programmer specializing in human computer interaction and computer graphics and an alumnus of the University of Maryland [ 1 ] and a former member of the University of Maryland Human – Computer Interaction Lab . He inspired Richard Stallman , who described him as a "very imaginative fellow", to use the term copyleft . He coined Deep Crack as the name of the EFF DES cracker , and built " AJAXian " applications for the NeWS window system 17 years before the term was coined. [ 2 ] He ported the SimCity computer game to several versions of Unix and developed a multi player version of SimCity for X11 , did much of the core programming of The Sims , and developed robot control and personality simulation software for Will Wright 's Stupid Fun Club.

This paper presents Leaf menu, a new type of contextual linear menu that supports curved gesture shortcuts. By providing an alternative to keyboard shortcuts, the Leaf menus can be used for the selection of commands on tabletops, but its key benefit is its adequacy to small handheld touchscreen devices (PDA, Smartphone). Indeed Leaf menus define a compact and known layout inherited from linear menus, they support precise finger interaction, they manage occlusion and they can be used in close proximity to the screen borders. Moreover, by providing stroke shortcuts, they favour the selection of frequent commands in expert mode and make eye-free selection possible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsswQ06pZrU
Wavelet Menus on Handheld Devices: Stacking Metaphor for Novice Mode and Eyes-Free Selection for Expert Mode (AVI'10, IHM'09, MobileHCI'09) We present the design, implementation and evaluation of the Wavelet menu developed on the iPhone . The Wavelet menu consists of a concentric hierarchical Marking menu based on simple gestures.
Eine Handbewegung und die Mac-Webcam reichen aus, um zum Beispiel iTunes oder Spotify zu steuern. Flutter ist eine kostenlose Anwendung, die zwar noch deutlich ausbaufähig ist, aber auf einer Entfernung von bis zu drei Metern Gesten erkennen kann, mit denen der Anwender die Musikwiedergabe anhalten und wieder starten kann. Das ist zum Beispiel sinnvoll, wenn ein Telefonanruf eingeht und der Benutzer nicht direkt am Rechner sitzt, um den Ton zu regulieren. Flutter kann derzeit nicht mehr, als die Wiedergabe anzuhalten, doch das soll sich durch eine Weiterentwicklung der Software bald ändern. Die App läuft unter Mac OS X.

A pie menu. In computer interface design, a pie menu (also known as a radial menu ) is a circular context menu where selection depends on direction. A pie menu is made of several "pie slices" around an inactive center and works best with stylus input, and well with a mouse . Pie slices are drawn with a hole in the middle for an easy way to exit the menu. Pie menus work well with keyboard acceleration, particularly four and eight item menus, on the cursor keys and the number pad .
