The room is approached as an illusionary space, a simulation of a possible future experience of daily life instead of a tool for content development. In ‘living-room2’ the space itself becomes the object of transformation. In the virtual layer, the room can be visually transformed, reconstructed, extended, etc. Thus, the user becomes part of an immersive environment. By giving the visitor the possibility to “change the space”, living-room2 offers new opportunities for applications in the fields of Architecture, Scenography, Tourism, Museology and Education.
The Whisper Deck Craig Kapp 2009 headmounted display, marker recognition, marker, generative animation, single-user, 360 large field of view, reacts to head position, non-linear informational narrative defined by user, any suface, Flicker, Google, search, informational, voice
The Whisper Deck is a voice-controlled augmented reality data visualization tool that immerses users within a fluid information ecosystem of their own design. Using an off the shelf Vuzix CamAR head mounted display, users can look around their local environment. A special symbol visible in the environment causes the 3D interface of the Whisper Deck to appear. Users can speak commands to the model to cause it to search the Internet and return relevant information, including spoken definitions from Wikipedia, images from Picasa, Flickr and Google Images, as well as search term comparisions from Google Trends.
