In this paper we present a novel input device and associated VI metaphors for Cloud computing. Cloud computing will give users access to huge amount of data in new forms as well as anywhere and anytime, with applications ranging from Wcb data mining to social networks. The motivation of this work is to provide users acccss to cloud computing by a new personal device and to make nearby displays a personal displayer. The key points of this device arc direct-point operation, grasping VI and tangible feedback. A VI metaphor for cloud computing is also introduced.
