A new scrolling gesture. Hold control and spiral the mouse clockwise for down, counter-clockwise for up.
The goal of this project is to replace the traditional two-finger scrolling gesture system online. Disadvantages to this traditional gesture include a lack of long range accuracy. By this, we mean that in order to scroll to a specific place an unknown distance down the page, the user must “send” the page downward and hope to stop its scrolling at the correct point. With Spiroll, the user can scroll in one continuous, smooth motion to the exact desired point. In addition to this, Spiroll aims to remove the need for the constant “scroll, pick up hand, place at the top of the track pad, scroll again” algorithm by allowing for an infinitely long single scroll.
