    Lumisight Table: Interactive View-Dependent Display-Table Surrounded by Multiple Users

Description:


    Introduction

    When you use a computer, your eyes are focused on a display, and your hands are restricted to a keyboard or mouse device. This is bad for communication and collaboration. In a collaboration, nonverbal communication modalities, such as eye contact, facial expressions, and handling physical objects together, are just as important as the verbal modality. With our “Lumisight Table” you can stay close enough to maintain nonverbal communication and collaboration while using computers, since its display is physically single but visually multiple (See Fig.1). Moreover, computers can be controlled by hand gestures or by placing physical objects on the display.
