Organic UIs and Cross-Reality Spaces

Published Paper


2nd International Workshop on Organic User Interfaces (OUI 2011), at TEI 2011, Madeira Portugal


In this paper we discuss designed features of a cross-reality collaborative environment that are relevant to OUIs. These include responsive furniture, paper-based interfaces and a mappable project space. We identify three impediments to a truly flexible workspace caused by "non-organic" technologies in this environment: brittleness, limited resolution and technology-imposed boundaries. Finally, we speculate on the transformative impact that OUIs could have in this application space.
