DisplayObjects: Interactive Styrofoam Gadget Design Workbench

May 31st, 2008

DisplayObjects, by Eric Akaoka and Roel Vertegaal at the Human Media Laboratory in Canada is an organic user interface for creating computer displays on arbitrary surfaces, such as pieces of model cardboard or blocks of styrofoam. It allows easy prototyping of hardware gadgets through software/hardware fusion. The system tracks the location of the model, as well as the finger, via markers tracked through computer vision, and renders a 3D software model of the object back onto the hardware model through projection [Site Link].
