ACM CHI 1992 Issue 77 - Dynamic Queries: Database Searching By Direct Manipulation

This video explores the application of direct manipulation to information exploration. Specifically; it introduces the idea of a dynaamic query; which empowers the user to search a database of information in the task domain while requiring minimal syntax or computer knowledge. Key features that separate a dynamic query from current information retreival systems are its direct manipulative nature; providing immediate search feedback with object interaction; and a harmonious display of the query and resulst in a graphical environment.
