Summary In PaperVideo, paper-like displays are used not only to project the interfaces on, but as interface elements themselves: sliding two displays against each other or using the tip of one display as a pointer in another display, bumping displays together etc.
Description Lissermann et al. (2012) describe a set of techniques for interacting with videos by using paper displays. A video’s timeline can be navigated by positioning 2 displays as the beginning and end of a video and moving a display across an imaginary line to preview different parts of a video. Piling several displays with different videos results in thumbnails of all videos in a pile being shown on the top display. Putting 2 displays side by side results in showing a list of related videos. Sliding the display on the right triggers a larger preview of each related video to be shown on it and pulling the displays aparts results in the original video being shown on the left display and the selected related video on the right. Bumping 2 displays together results in linking the corresponding videos. Using the top corners of a bottom displays can be used to trim a video shown on the upper display and extracting the trimmed section to the bottom display. Finally, shaking a display clears it. Restoring the cleared contents occurs by selecting a special recycle bin icon, shown in the corner of the empty display, with a stylus.
