The paper outlines what it is trying to solve. From the CHI paper
(this is all from the introduction):
* It wants to explore a physics-based desktop interface as an
alternative to the standard desktop (exploratory is the key word
* "Our goal in adding physics to the desktop is to make the
interaction feel more continuous and analog" so that users can
use "strategies they employ in the real world" when interacting
* "Another goal is to support casual organization of information,"
such as creating ad-hoc piles instead of filing information into
some formal scheme.
Also, the interaction techniques are intended for tablet PCs and
using a pen.
It stems from information visualization research, and also from
research on how people use paper documents and physical artifacts as
documented in works like "The Myth of the Paperless Office."
