Demo Voodoosketch: Physical Interface Palette and Sketched Controls alongside Augmented Work Surfaces

By Florian Block, Michael Haller, Hans Gellersen, Carl Gutwin and Mark Billinghurst


Voodoosketch is a system that extends a graphical table top interface with physical palettes on which users can dynamically deploy controls as shortcut to application functionality. The system provides physical ‘plug and play’ controls as well as support for sketching of controls, and allows controls to be associated with application functions via handwritten labels. The system uses a special digital pen, which writes ‘real’ ink on the palettes and while functioning as a digital input device on the graphical work surface
