The Shared Design Space” — showcased at SIGGRAPH 2006 — is an interface for “enhancing face-to-face collaboration using multiple displays and input surfaces.” Video demonstration after the jump.

The system supports natural gestures and paper-pen input and overcomes the limitations of using traditional technology in co-located meetings and brainstorming activities

Description

The project combines a number of diverse technologies to create a unique interface, including:
* A vertical rear-projection surface
* Horizontal tabletop projection
* Integration of multiple devices (laptop and tablet PCs) and a wireless networking setup
* Anoto digital pen and paper
* Computer-vision-based gesture tracking
* Combination and integration of different interaction metaphors (for example, advanced hyper-dragging and intuitive interaction with both the table and whiteboard)
