Paper Abstract

As the sophistication and power of computer systems continues to increase, the need for simplicity of human interface increases. The requirement to make systems ''accessible'' and ''friendly'' to the user is fundamental for the success of the system. While the development of touch input devices has opened the door to the possibility of incorporating the simplest user actions (i.e., looking and pointing) to control the operation of complex systems, the performance of these input devices has often not met the application''s requirements. The difference between the limits of the technology versus the current implementation of the technology has become clouded. The current implementation of the technology has not produced a product that represents the fully developed state of design, by example, of what the technology is capable of. Improvements in the operation of touch input devices are necessary for the realization of the goal of improved human interfacing to complex systems and overall system performance.
