Abstract

The genometry project is a multi-user virtual environment in which users from Worcester Polytechnic University and Osaka University can interact on public displays through the use of mobile devices. On the screen, users are represented by creature avatars which they can customize and navigate around the display for the purpose of interacting with the environment and with the other users. The project explores interactive uses of public displays with mobile devices as controllers, as well as international interaction and communication.
