Summary Chucking is the act of mimicking physically throwing your device in some direction like chucking playing cards. Done while pressing your finger to a piece of data, it sends that data from your private device to a public screen for display.
Description Hassan et al. describe Chucking - an interaction technique allowing users to share documents between private and public screens with a single-handed gesture. To trigger an interaction the user selects items that needs to be shared and extends her forearm or wrist similar to they way cards are chucked on a table. The recognition of the gesture is performed based on the values of the tilt sensors of the mobile device.
Design motivation Augmenting existing practices, Designing new types of interactions
