Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2915)


A display device called intuition-driven monitor will be introduced. The device has been developed by combining a LCD, a flexible arm suspending the display, angle sensors and a CCD camera, and is directly manipulated by a user with his direct operations by hands, eye-gaze and facial expressions. A user is able to explore virtual space and manipulate virtual environment with gestures and the sense of haptics.
