Title: Spatial Peripheral Interaction Techniques for Viewing and Manipulating Off-Screen Digital Content

Abstract: When an information space is larger than the display, it is typical for interfaces to only support interacting with content that is rendered within the display viewport. To support interacting with off-screen content, our work explores the design of several spatial techniques that make use of the interaction space around the display. Guided by a theoretical framework of the off-screen interaction space, these techniques were implemented in a multimodal off-screen interaction system using commodity motion sensing hardware. Finally, a comparative evaluation was performed with a subset of our techniques and mouse panning in two tasks involving interaction with off-screen objects.
