Extended Surface

Janet Daniel, Vyacheslav Gurevich
Until now smartphones were designed for a limited interaction frame and for private use of a single person. In addition the combination of device and touch gestures as an operation tool for surfaces is yet rarely researched. We are working on an extended on-surface projection for mobile devices, because we want to find out how the limited size of displays can be extended by using ambient surfaces, so that people have direct access to applications and files, can interact with them in public and use their device as an additional operating tool. We developed a prototype for this scenario and used a multitouch display for simulating holographic or projected information.
