In this paper, we introduce Flashlight interaction, a new approach
to light-based interaction between mobile phones and large
screens by using the phone camera flashlight. Using a mobile
phone as an interaction device with large screens has been
explored in various projects. Mobile phones are enhanced with
different sensors and provide opportunities to be used as an
interaction device with other devices such as a large display. Our
approach supports to set up a private-public display setting and
provide simple means for interaction without a wireless
connectivity. Our user study results indicate that the interaction is
easy to perform and understand due to the direct mapping between
the phone movement and the response on the screen.
