Positive examples of large-touch screen display interaction: Interactive touch wall at CeBIT; UBC's Shadow Reaching
I'd like to share a couple examples of interesting applications, designed for very-large interactive displays. Unlike the examples I shared previously, these examples look like they provide an engaging user experience:
The following interactive multi-user wall was showcased at the recent CeBIT 2008 conference in Germany. Although the display is busy, it looks easy and fun to use:
Shadow Reaching is a project developed by Garth Shoemaker, Anthony Tang, and Kellogg S. Booth from the University of British Columbia. It provides a unique means of interacting with very large displays.
According to information from the video, Shadow Reaching "supports natural interaction over the entire large display surface and provides strong user embodiment".
