ShowMe: A Remote Collaboration System that Supports Immersive Gestural Communication

Xavier Benavides, Pattie Maes, Judith Amores


ShowMe is an immersive mobile collaboration system that allows a remote user to communicate with a peer using video, audio and hand gestures. We explore the use of a Head Mounted Display and depth camera to create a system that (1) enables a remote user to be immersed in another user's first-person's point of view and (2) offers a new way for the remote expert to provide guidance through three dimensional hand gestures and voice. Using ShowMe both users are present in the same physical environment and can perceive real-time communication from one another in the form of 2-handed gestures and voice.
