Description Swindells et al. describe an interaction tSwindells et al. describe an interaction technique called “that one there!”, which relies on a special infrared-based stylus, called the gesturePen, that can be pointed to a device, which is instrumented with a special tag. The gesturePen scans the device’s tag and is able to read it’s identity information, which is transferred to a device the gesturePen is connected to. A wireless connection is then established between the scanned device and the one to which the gesturePen is connected, making it possible to initiate file transfer between them.le to initiate file transfer between them.  +

Summary A special stylus is permanently paired to its parent device; pointing its reading tip to other devices allows it to identify these and send its parent device an order to pair with it, creating an ad-hoc network connection  +
