Title:


    Lumino: Tangible Building Blocks Based on Glass Fiber Bundles

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 16


Description:


    We present luminos, tangible building blocks that allow users to assemble physical 3D structures on a tabletop computer. All lu-minos are tracked using the table’s built-in camera, including those luminos located on top of other luminos. To enable this, each lumino contains not only a fiducial marker, but also a glass fiber bundle that allows the camera to “see through it”. Applica-tions include a tangible image editing application, a board game, and a tangible 3D construction kit.
