MistForm: Adaptive Shape Changing Fog Screens


MistForm is a shape changing fog display that can support one or two users interacting with either 2D or 3Dcontent. Mistform combines affordances from both shape changing interfaces and reach-through mid-air displays. For example, a concave display can maintain content in comfortable reach for a single user, while a convex shape can support several users engaged on individual tasks. MistForm also enables unique interaction possibilities by exploiting the synergies between shape changing interfaces and mid-air fog displays. Moving the screen will affect the brightness and blurriness of the screen at specific locations around the display, creating spaces with similar (collaboration) or different visibility (personalized content).
