Evolution of a Tabletop Telepresence System through Art and Technology
New technologies arise in a number of ways. They may come from advances in scientific research, through new combinations of existing technologies, or by simply imagining what might be possible in the future. This video describes the evolution of Tabletop Telepresence, a system for remote collaboration through desktop videoconferencing combined with a digital desk. Tabletop Telepresence began as a collection of camera, projector, videoconferencing and user interaction technologies. Working together; artists and research scientists combined these technologies into a means of sharing paper documents between remote desktops, interacting with those documents, requesting services (such as translation), and communicating through a videoconference. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.4.m [INFORMATION SYSTEMS APPLICATIONS]: Miscellaneous. General Terms Design, Human Factors. Keywords Digital desk, tabletop systems, telepresence.
