HomeProxy: A Physical Proxy for Video Messaging in the HomeHomeProxy is a research prototype that uses a physical proxy to support video messaging at home among distributed family members. A physical artifact dedicated to remote family members makes it easier to chat with them over video. HomeProxy combines a form factor designed for the home environment with a 'no-touch' user experience and an interface that quickly transitions between recorded and live video communication. We designed and implemented a prototype and our early experiences with it indicate the...

IllumiShare Physical and Digital Surface Sharing (TechFest 2012)In this video, we show how IllumiShare can share any object both across two physical surfaces and across a physical and a digital surface. In the first part of the video, we show how sharing across two physical tables supports scenarios such as sketching, diagramming, and designing, while in the second part of the video, we show how a remote meeting attendee on a digital device, such as a slate or tablet PC, can interact with a physical whiteboard in the meeting conference room.

Retroactive SecurityClassic security uses access control, and, essentially, that does not work. Current systems are designed to say “no” and otherwise limit access, while another reason is code bugs. Real-world security currently is retroactive, an example being the financial system, in which mistakes or breaks can be undone after they occur. Typical access controls consist of both physical and principal boundaries, isolation of an item or information, control of access into this isolation, and policies stating who can have...
