GeoTUI is a system designed for geophysicists that provides props as tangible user interface on a tabletop vision-projection system for the selection of cutting planes on a geographical map of a subsoil model. Our GeoTUI system allows the geophysicists to manipulate in the same action and perception space since the movement of the physical artifacts is done(More)
Cultural objects of archeological findings are often broken and fractured into a large amount of fragments, and the archeologists are confronted by 3D puzzles when reassembling the fractured objects. Scanning the fragments and reassembling the corresponding 3D objects virtually is an elegant (and sometimes the only) solution. An efficient user interaction(More)
ArcheoTUI is a new tangible user interface for the efficient assembly of the 3D scanned fragments of fractured archeological objects. An efficient user interaction for the complex task to orientate or position two 3D objects relative to each other is essential, eventually in addition to automatic matching techniques. Our key idea is to use tangible props(More)
In the context of the very dynamic and challenging domain of affective computing, we adopt a software engineering point of view on emotion recognition in interactive systems. Our goal is threefold: first, developing an architecture model for emotion recognition. This architecture model emphasizes multimodality and reusability. Second, developing a prototype(More)
In the specific case of the assembly of virtual 3D objects, using tangible bimanual interaction, we discuss the choice of modality in order to activate another modality. 1 Context and related works We place our analyse in the specific case of the assembly of virtual 3D objects using tangible bimanual interaction. In that situation, both hands are(More)
We describe the joint research that we conduct in gesture-based emotion recognition and virtual augmentation of a stage, bridging together the fields of computer science and dance. After establishing a common ground for dialogue, we could conduct a research process that equally benefits both fields. As computer scientists, dance is a perfect application(More)
This paper presents the Multisensory Interactive Window, a system that allows experiencing distant places and communicating with distant people through a tangible installation that exploits the window metaphor and multisensory feedback. Thanks to the feeling of being just in front of a natural landscape or a room inhabited by a beloved person, we strive to(More)
Cultural heritage artifacts often contain details that are difficult to distinguish due to aging effects such as erosion. We propose the <i>revealing flashlight</i>, a new interaction and visualization technique in spatial augmented reality that helps to reveal the detail of such artifacts. We locally and interactively augment a physical artifact by(More)
