Description:


    “THE DIMENSION BOOK” is a novel interface in the form of a “book,” which can dynamically reflect various changes in the environment of the real world into the virtual world.

    By moving “THE DIMENSION BOOK,” the user can look at the virtual world from all directions. When shining light onto it, the virtual world will be irradiated by light with the same direction and intensity, and the virtual objects will be appropriately shaded as they cast their shadows on the plane. Finally, by blowing into it, the flame in the virtual world will flicker, or extinguish if the breath is too strong.

    Thus, with its intuitive interface, “THE DIMENSION BOOK” is neither a mere “book” nor a “display,” but a “media” that introduces new possibilities for interactivity by realizing a “seamless boundary” between the real and virtual worlds.
