Mutli Mouse

July 31st, 2008 by admin

For a project we completed early this year, we put together a system that simplifies communication between multiple networked computers. We are now using this system to create experimental interfaces that enable users to work both independently and collaboratively. The video below shows a sketch of such an interface. Users can drag colored blocks around with their mouse. They can also drag the shapes to the edge of their screens, where other users can then take them. It is also possible for two users to manipulate the shapes at the same time. Through this collaboration, the shapes can be rotated.
