title DO-IT: deformable object as input tool for 3-D geometric operation
source Computer-Aided Design, Vol. 32 (1) (2000) pp. 5-16
summary In this paper, a new concept of an interface system for 3-D geometric operation using a deformable real object as an input tool is proposed. By deforming the tool with barehands by tactile feedback, users can deform a 3-D shape modeled and displayed on a computer screen directly and intuitively. By adopting a free form deformation-orientedapproach, the interface enables various types of 3-D shape operations using a rather simple input tool. A prototype of the deformable object as input tool (DO-IT) interfacesystem using a cubic input tool made of foam rubber and strain gauges demonstrates the effectiveness and potential of the concept.
