Abstract: Previous research has shown that rotation and orientation of items plays three major roles during the course of tabletop collaboration: comprehension, coordination and communication. Based on these roles of orientation, we designed a novel tabletop rotation mechanism, Rotate N Translate (RNT), which provides integral control of rotation and translation using only a single touch-point for input. We present an empirical evaluation comparing RNT to the standard rotation mechanism that separated control of rotation and translation. Results of this study indicate RNT is more efficient than the separate mechanism and better supports the communicative and comprehensive roles of orientation, without sacrificing support for coordination.
