Touchable Tent Prototype Aurora

An immersive interaction prototype created at Art && Code 3D to explore the potential for physical interaction with digital interfaces from a non-upright body position (such as sitting, lying, reclining, floating, etc).

Working with students and staff at Carnegie Mellon, I prototyped this wood-framed tent which performs as a full-body touchscreen. The software system currently supports up to four points of contact from participants lying down inside. Thus it could be used by multiple visitors, or more to the point, multiple limbs.
