An Exploration of Shape in Crowd Computer Interactions

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9170)

Abstract

In this paper we explore crowd-computer interactions using a crowd shape generated from participating crowd members, both simulated and non-simulated, in three main shape forms (blobby, precise, and a combination of the two) to explore whether such an interactive form, and which of the three forms, can be both a viable and interesting method of having many people collaboratively interacting with large public displays in public spaces.
