Beyond - Collapsible Input Device for 3D Direct Manipulation, 2009
Project by Jinha Lee and Surat Teerapittayanon.
Advisor: Hiroshi Ishii
What would it be like to reach into the screen? Beyond is a collapsible input device for direct 3D manipulation. When pressed against a screen, Beyond collapses in the physical world and extends into the digital space of the screen, so that users have an illusion that they are inserting the tool into the virtual space. Beyond allows users to interact directly with 3D media without having to wear special glasses. One can select, draw, and sculpt in 3D virtual space.
*This interface is a single-user interface. In some scenes/pictures, graphics is rendered from the perspective of the camera instead of the demonstrator to communicate how the scene looks from the demonstrator's point of view.
