Face-to-Face Tabletop Remote Collaboration in Mixed Reality
This paper proposes a novel remote face-to-face Mixed Reality (MR) system that enables two people in distant places to share MR space. Challenging issues to realize such an MR system include capturing, sending, and rendering each user’s appearance in real time. We developed a method to represent user’s upper body and hands on the table as a single deformed-billboard. An MR Othello game is implemented as a test bed of the remote face-to-face MR system. Users can play the tabletop game as if their opponent were sitting across from the table, despite being physically separated. By detecting and sending the status of each real game board to the other site, both users feel that they are sharing tabletop objects.
