MobiToss: A novel gesture based interface for creating and sharing mobile multimedia art on large public displays.
Proc. ACM International Conference on Multimedia 2008, October 27-31, Vancouver, Canada, 957-960.
We present the MobiToss, a novel application for creating and sharing mobile multimedia art with an off-the-shelf mobile phone equipped with built-in accelerometer sensors allowing gesture control. The user first takes a photo or captures a video with the phone and then with a throwing gesture 'throws' the clip onto a large public display for instant viewing and manipulation by tilting the phone in different directions. The system augments the user-created clip with other items such as music or brand labels and the encoded clip is automatically sent back to the phone as a personal reward. The clip is also uploaded to a dedicated community website for sharing the created multimedia art with other people. MobiToss could be deployed e.g. in clubs, pubs and concerts as a participatory VJ-tool. We also present the main results of a preliminary user evaluation, which highlight the novel art experience provided by MobiToss.
