WASABI: A Haptic Window System

WASABI: Computer Window System on a Real Desktop



Real-world-oriented interface techniques will be popular in the near future, then new interface techniques bridging the gap between real-world-oriented interface and traditional GUI will be required. So, we propose a new haptic window system (called Wasabi), which can be integrated into desk-type real-world-oriented interface systems. This system projects a display image of GUI onto a real desktop, and it enables users to grab and to move windows just like papers, by projecting windows according to positions of transparent sheets on the desktop. Motions of transparancies are recognized by the system throught a camera. Also, this system can control window sizes by considering users' attention for tasks.
