From the results of two Human behavior studies in small group interactions we constructed iteratively a Collaborative Virtual Environment named “VIRSTORY”. This system is a digital storytelling with speech and 3D gesture recognition technologies using like input devices. It includes several modules: multimodal interaction module, behavior module to animate autonomous expressive characters, etc.
