Beyond: A Collapsible Input Device for 3D Direct Manipulation

None

Groups

Beyond is a collapsible input device for direct 3D manipulation. When pressed against a screen, Beyond collapses in the physical world and extends into the digital space of the screen, so that users have an illusion that they are inserting the tool into the virtual space. Beyond allows users to interact directly with 3D media without having to wear special glasses, avoiding inconsistencies of input and output. Users can select, draw, and sculpt in 3D virtual space, and seamlessly transition between 2D and 3D manipulation.
