Illuminating clay: a 3-D tangible interface for landscape analysis

  title={Illuminating clay: a 3-D tangible interface for landscape analysis},
  author={Ben Piper and Carlo Ratti and Hiroshi Ishii},
This paper describes a novel system for the real-time computational analysis of landscape models. Users of the system - called Illuminating Clay - alter the topography of a clay landscape model while the changing geometry is captured in real-time by a ceiling-mounted laser scanner. A depth image of the model serves as an input to a library of landscape analysis functions. The results of this analysis are projected back into the workspace and registered with the surfaces of the model.We describe… CONTINUE READING
