LiquidText is a research project that uses multitouch to help people do deep, critical reading. As shown in the video, it lets people collapse documents to see disparate parts together, pull off and connect excerpts, create comments that link different documents or parts of documents, aggregate one's highlights together, and so on.
By using multitouch, we can take complex interactions with many degrees of freedom (like document collapsing) and make them natural and quick--since we can work with input from multiple fingers at once. Together, we hope this starts to open the door to new, more fluid ways to interact with text documents.
LiquidText was developed by Craig Tashman as part of his dissertation research at Georgia Tech. To learn more, visit http://www.liquidtext.net
