Abstract

We tried to explore the possibility of using deformation-based interaction as a new input method to remote control. We selected eight basic commands to control TV and design deformation-based gestures for each command based on prior studies regarding organic user interface. A prototype, the FlexRemote, was made and tested by informal user study. The study showed that the users have higher preferences to the FlexRemote in comparison with the conventional input devices and the users can make intuitive interactions through physical deforms. From this positive explorative study, we are expecting that this study will present a new direction in intuitive and fun interaction method with TV in living room environments, which is gaining greater importance.
