Title

DOTKey Device Implementation

Abstract

The DOTKey text entry system enables the creation of novel input apparatuses that combine the functionality of previously disparate devices such as the keyboard and mouse. However, for significant changes to traditional input methods to have any chance of widespread adoption, entry barriers to such technology must be minimized. In this talk we present the first level of Demo 1, a first person video game designed to “gamify” the task of learning to operate an experimental hand-held device that merges a DOTKey surface with a traditional pointing device.
