Description:


    This project presents a novel interaction paradigm in which computer screens serve as islands of virtual space (iLands). Mobile “virtual rafts” let people move animated agents between iLands. The project features innovations in heterogeneous computer graphics, tangible human-computer interaction, interactive animated characters, and mobile computing technology. It has applications in education, entertainment, and new media art.
