Dynamic adaptation of instrumental interaction
The concept of instrumental interaction, introduced by Beaudouin-Lafon, is used in post-wimp interfaces to implement modern interaction mechanisms. However, in current implementations, the interaction tools are static ones, and are not able to adapt themselves to the interaction context, nor to the objects they are acting on. We propose an extension of the instrumental interaction concept, based on interaction rules, that is able to dynamically adapt the behavior of an interaction tool, through modification, augmentation, or deletion of its internal state, depending of the interaction context  .
