‘Obake’ (o-baa-keh) – 2.5D interaction gestures to manipulate 3D surfaces


Created by Dhairya Dand and Robert Hemsley, the project seeks to develop gestures to evolve three-dimensional surfaces using 2.5D interaction. Learning from existing displays which are two-dimensional and using optical illusion and depth sensing cameras, the flat elastic surface is used as a way to manipulate surfaces and objects in three-dimensional space. The project is called 'Obake' (o-baa-keh) imagines what if our screens were elastic, we could literally pinch and pull them.
