Description:


    Introduction

    BYU-BYU-View is a novel interface realized with the symbiosis of the input/output of wind and the computer graphics. “BYU-BYU” is a Japanese onomatopoeia for a howling wind. It adds a new element, that is, “wind”, to the direct interaction with a user and a virtual environment, and the communication through a network, by integrating the graphic presentation with the input and output of wind on a special screen.

    This system brings the new communication medium of “wind” into the bidirectional interaction between the virtual environment and the real environment. Player can interact with the virtual environment in the screen through his/her breath and the wind emission from the device. Conversely, actions from the virtual environment to an experiment are performed by wind changing dynamically. A single screen is used for both sensing and presentation of wind. As a result, the experiment can share not only sights and sounds but also the cutaneous sensation by wind with the system, and interact with the virtual environment feeling a nonconventional deep relationship.

    BYU-BYU-View uses “wind”, the new communication medium to bring the different information from the acoustic or visual one. We aim at the establishment of the totally new interface that uses a communication medium of wind as an interaction system connecting people of distant places with the cutaneous sensation or as an interaction device with the virtual world.
