Multi-Touch Screens vs. Mouse-Driven Screens
Compare and Contrast the Metaphors used in the Design of Applications that Run on Each Type of Monitor
The metaphors utilised in the design of applications that run on multi touch screens and mouse driven screen is different. The key metaphor used in multi touch screens is called meta-tips. In this metaphor,
an area of virtual clay is generated beneath the hands of the users relying on the size of the blobs sensed by the system for the finger tips of the users and on the closeness of these blobs. Brush metaphor is another important metaphor that allows user o paint on the surface with the use of special brushes that alters the appearance of the object.
Differentiate between the interaction types and styles that apply to these monitors and applications running on them (Cox, 2010).
