FocalSpace is a system for focused collaboration utilizing spatial depth and directional audio. We present a space where participants, tools, and other physical objects within the space are treated as interactive objects that can be detected, selected, and augmented with metadata. Further, we demonstrate several scenarios of interaction as concrete examples. By utilizing diminishing reality to remove unwanted background surroundings through synthetic blur, the system aims to attract participant attention to foreground activity.
