Video call experiments

Some prototypes using projectors and webcams.

Sometimes you want to show slides in video calls, but

  • showing slides shifts attention from your face, which damages the social interaction; and
  • the slides aren't responsive to what you're saying.

There’s all that empty space over your shoulders! What if you want to do a quick sketch? Couldn’t you do it there?

I built a lo-fi prototype to project my live sketches at my face and onto the wall behind.

Using virtual webcams I gave a number of presentations where my face and the content mixed freely, allowing new playful interactions.
