portl' / Concept for authentic digital communication

portl'
portl'

The idea is a result of a research on the topic ‚super flat displays‘. A desk positioned nearly a wall and a wide angle camera installed in the wall which is filming the sitting-on-the-table scenario. This video is being streamed to the wall of the communication partner, like videotelephony applications does. By filming each scenario and streaming it to the other side in realtime, the two single desks appear as one big interactive multitouch table and data can be swiped over the table through the wall on the other table. So it‘s possible to easily communicate, share files or take a look at the latest photos.
