Method and system for gravity based file transfer

Disclosed is a system, method, and program product which allows a user to transfer one or more selected files from one device to another device by tilting the source device on the target device.

Files are transferred from one device to another device as indicated by a gravitational force. For example any file can be considered a liquid and content flows as a liquid. Files may be transferred responsive to finger gestures, such drag and drop.

Example embodiments include:

User transfers one or more selected files from one device to another device by tilting


1.

the source device on the target device.

For flexible devices, user can bend one device or another device and selected files


2.

are transferred as indicated by a gravitational flow between the devices.

While transferring the files from one device to another device. a file transfer


3.

progress bar may be used to indicate the transfer. The user may un-tilt or un-bend the device to stop file transfer.

If file transfer is stopped based on step 3., then only a partial file transfer may occur.


4.

Setting a parametric time sequence, such as starting at time x, and in either forward


5.

or backwards direction with indicate an ordered transfers of files in the specified time sequence.

Transfers may be displayed by dates and via image thumbnails.


6.

Option to either retrieve or pour back files may be supported as well as speeding up


7.

or slowing down the transfer based o...
