FLIPCLOAK - The Window Manager System for Overlapping Windows with Vacuum Metaphor of Visualizations

Abstract

Overlapping windows prevent us from finding the target window immediately. They reduce the operability and the visibility so that it is important issue how to visualize and manage the windows on a desktop. In this research we propose the new window management method that uses combinational operation with a personal computer and a smartphone. Then we prototype the application called the FlipCloak. The FlipCloak is the system that controls transfer of windows on the desktop between devices with simple gestural interaction. Using the FlipCloak we can manage windows on a desktop efficiently by putting the low-priority window in the other device temporarily as putting one’s stuff in the cloakroom.
