Abstract(in English) Recently, mobile devices have rapidly penetrated into our daily lives. However, several drawbacks of mobile devices have been mentioned so far. In this paper, Toss-It provides intuitive information transfer techniques for mobile devices, by fully utilizing their mobility. By using the developed system called Toss-It, a user can send information from the user's PDA to other electronic devices with a "toss" or "swing" action, as the user would toss a ball or deal cards to others. We will present the circuit boards designed to be attached to a PDA and the algorithms for recognizing "toss" and "swing" actions.
