Abstract

With the popularity of mobile devices, more and more people read on their phones or tablets in fragmented time. Screen sizes, handedness and other habit factors make the user interface (UI) and interactions far from satisfying every reader. In this study, we present a capacitive sensor based prototype and some novel interactions. The palm grasp style and finger touch gestures are used to infer user reading intent. The user study shows our system can provide efficient recognition and good usability.
