- To access the
information presented by a "bubble" in the InfoRiver,
a bubble can be dragged to the lower area of the InforMall ("out
of the InfoRiver"), where its content will be displayed.
- If the displayed
information seems valuable to a user, he can take along the bubble
using his personal ViewPort device. To simplify the task of taking
something from one device and transfer it to another, we created
the "Port" interface.
- When a ViewPort
is held closely to a Port, a special icon appears on both devices
(e.g., InforMall and ViewPort). Information
objects can now be transfered between the devices by simply dragging
them onto one of the icons.
