Traditional ways of interacting with Hypermedia fail in a domestic setting because the user interaction devices typical of a desktop Hypermedia system (mouse, keyboard, joystick, high resolution screen) are currently unavailable or are impractical in a domestic setting. We have investigated and prototyped an alternate interaction device based on a hand-held Touchpad that we believe is practical in a domestic environment where people interact with Hypermedia content for education and entertainment in a lounge room like setting. We have evaluated the usability level of the device in human trials and found that it performs better than keyboard-mouse combination, which is one of the most widely used interaction device today.
