Who and when?
Dr. Raimund Dachselt, Professor for Computer Science at the Technische Universität Dresden is going to visit our University on Thursday, December 11th. His talk will start at 3:00 pm in the Visual Computing Lab C 061.
Topic: Natural Interaction in Multi-Display Environments
We are faced with an ever increasing multitude of interactive surfaces in any size ranging from smartwatches and tablets to tabletops and large display walls. The talk will first provide insight in research on combining several modalities to interact directly on the surface. It will then be demonstrated that the interaction space can be extended to the 3D volume above tabletops by adding multiple spatially aware, handheld magic lenses. These tangible displays allow exploring various information spaces mapped onto the 3D space. Furthermore, considering the space in front of large interactive display wall, we can further extend the interaction space by also including remote interaction. Gaze-supported interaction, handheld tangibles and gestures are discussed as possible input channels. By combining multiple displays and interaction modalities in a seamless way, we can now interact with digital content on, in front and behind large wall-sized display paving the way for effective collaboration.
