Traversable interfaces between real and virtual worlds

11 years 5 months ago
Traversable interfaces between real and virtual worlds
Traversable interfaces establish the illusion that virtual and physical worlds are joined together and that users can physically cross from one to the other. Our design for a traversable interface combines work on tele-embodiment, mixed reality boundaries and virtual environments. It also exploits non-solid projection surfaces, of which we describe four examples. Our design accommodates the perspectives of users who traverse the interface and also observers who are present in the connected physical and virtual worlds, an important consideration for performance and entertainment applications. A demonstrator supports encounters between members of our laboratory and remote visitors. Keywords Mixed Reality, Virtual Environments, Augmented Reality, Tele-presence, Tele-embodiment
