Abstract:Ubiquitous Interactive Displays are interfaces that extend interaction beyond traditional flat screens. This thesis presents a series of proof-of-concept systems exploring three interactive displays: the first part of this thesis explores interactive projective displays, where the use of projected light transforms and enhances physical objects in our environment. The second part of this thesis explores gestural displays, where traditional mobile devices such as our smartphones are equipped with depth sensors to enable input and output around a device. Finally, I introduce a new tactile display that imbues our physical spaces with a sense of touch in mid air without requiring the user to wear a physical device. These systems explore a future where interfaces are inherently everywhere, connecting our physical objects and spaces together through visual, gestural and tactile displays. I aim to demonstrate new technical innovations as well as compelling interactions with one ore more users and their physical environment. These new interactive displays enable novel experiences beyond flat screens that blurs the line between the physical and virtual world.
