Libro Vision: Gesture-Controlled Virtual Book
LibroVision is a new way to provide access to information, one that is oriented on the metaphor of a book and engineered by means of an intuitive interaction interface. The aim of the approach described here is to utilize books to take advantage of acculturated patterns of communication for the purpose of digitally propagating information. In going about this, prime consideration has been given to the development of an intuitive and convenient system of user-computer interaction, and to the accompanying increase in efficiency with respect to understanding the content to be disseminated. To achieve this, content is presented in the form of a digital book. A video camera registers the movements of the user standing before it and translates them into navigation commands. This work is one of the focal points of the Ars Electronica Futurelab’s R&D program: the evaluation, development and application of ephemeral interfaces.
