|PCT/ZA2014/000013||REALITYGATE (PTY) LTD||BOSHOFF, Hendrik, Frans, Verwoerd|
The invention provides a method for human-computer interaction (HCI) on a graphical user interface (GUI). The method includes the steps of displaying a plurality of objects positioned in relation to each other and in relation to the display window; determining user input; distorting at least one of the position relations according to a magnification function with a focal dip, where the focal position of the magnification function is controllable by the user input; and updating the distortion whenever the relevant user input changes.
