i*Chameleon is a multimodal interaction framework that enables programmers to readily prototype and test new interactive devices or interaction modes. It allows users to customize their own desktop environment for interaction beyond the usual KVM devices, which would be particularly useful for users with difficulty using the keyboard and mouse, or for systems deployed in specialized environments. This is made possible with the engineering of an interaction framework that distills the complexity of control processing to a set of semantically-rich modal controls that are discoverable, composable and adaptable. The framework can also be used for developing new applications with multimodal interactions, for example, distributed applications in collaborative environments or robot control.
