Internet of Screens

January 26th, 2015 Comments off

InternetofScreensSharing digital media has become second nature for most of us. Throughout the day, we interact a lot with media in the cloud without even noticing it. The cloud has become an essential part of our workflows, but not of our natural behavior. The goal of the project was to share and interact with digital media in the cloud in such a way, that it becomes an integral part of our daily routines. ‘Unify’ aims to link our smart devices together, to make them truly an extension of each other. By knowing the relative position to other devices, we are able to connect them in a much more intuitive way. For example, you can share your digital music with someone else in a physical way by just swiping a song. Magical and meaningful interactions do appear by blending the digital and physical design space.

Interactive Storytelling in Mixed Reality

PhD thesis, by Marija Nakevska

2015-MarijaNakevska-InteractiveStoryTellingImmersive and interactive Storytelling is a form of digital entertainment in which an actual narrative is recreated into highly immersive and interactive fictional worlds where a user can have the experience of being a character in a story that unfolds based on her actions. We take advantage of novel technologies, by merging real and virtual worlds to produce new environments that confront the user in an intense and a seemingly real experience. The user is physically immersed in the narrative, co-creates the story, and interacts with the space instead of watching on a screen.
