Description Chen et al. developed a Conduit technique Chen et al. developed a Conduit technique to facilitate information transfer among e-readers in their United Slates system. In this technique the non-dominant hand of the user designates the target device and the dominant hand select the item to be transferred. In this case the user’s body acts an imaginary conduit between the 2 devices, facilitating the file transfer.

In this case one device is used for displaying thumbnail previews and the other one for reading the corresponding pages.r one for reading the corresponding pages.  +

Summary The conduit uses your body as a data-transferring metaphor - with your non-dominant hand, tap the receiving device; then with your dominant hand, tap the piece of data to transfer - the transfer will go "through your body" from origin to destination.  +
