VersaPen: Exploring Multimodal Interactions with a Programmable Modular Pen

Abstract : We introduce and demonstrate VersaPen, a modular pen for expanding input capabilities. Users can create their own digital pens by stacking different input/output modules that define both the look and feel of the customized device. Ver-saPen investigate the benefits of adaptable devices and enriches interaction by providing multimodal capabilities, allows in-place interaction, it reduces hand movements and avoids cluttering the interface with menus and palettes. The device integrates seamlessly thanks to a visual programming interface, allowing end users to connect input and output sources in other existing software. We present various applications to demonstrate the power of VersaPen and how it enables new interaction techniques.
