Abstract: An indirect touch 3D interface using a two-sided handheld touch device for interactions with dense datasets on stereoscopic displays. This work explores the possibilities for a smartphone able to sense touch on both sides. Two android phones are combined back-to-back. The top touch surface is used for primary or fine interactions (selection /translation/ rotation) and bottom surface for coarser aspects such as mode control or feature extraction. Two surfaces are programmed to recognize input from 4 digits – two top and two bottom. The four touch areas enable 3D object selection, manipulation, and feature extraction using combinations of simultaneous touches.
