Description Zigelbaum et al. describe the design of a Zigelbaum et al. describe the design of a digital eyedropper called Slurp and the corresponding interaction technique, which allows a user to extract information from a screen by holding the eyedropper next to it and making a gesture similar to sucking water with a physical eyedropper. Touching another screen and squeezing the bulb triggers a transfer of content to that screen.gers a transfer of content to that screen.  +
