Nowadays, it is common practice for people to keep thousands of photos in their PCs, taken with their digital cameras. Due to the similarities in characteristics between video and still(More)
In this paper we propose the concept of Synthetic Space - architectural space fused with the properties of digital bits. Past efforts at integrating digital technology into architectural space have generally assumed architecture to be a stable, invariant background onto which layers of digital information/devices/services can be overlaid. In Synthetic(More)
We developed a new system called <i>CarettaKids</i> that supports face-to-face collaborative learning by children. <i>CarettaKids</i> uses a sensing board based on the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to support collaboration in a shared space, and the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) device to support activity in personal spaces. We also(More)
In this paper we describe how future office environments can benefit from the addition of <i>weightless walls</i> virtual, sound blocking walls created using headsets. We particularly focus on exploring how different interaction techniques can be employed to efficiently create, erase, or edit the layouts of these walls, and envisioning how they could impact(More)
