IllusionHoleStation

IllusionHoleStation

The IllusionHoleStation is an interactive, stereoscopic display system, providing multiple users a perspective correct visualization experience. Multiuser interaction was a main priority for this prototype. The IllusionHoleStation is based on the idea of the Illusion Hole developed at Human Interface Lab at the Osaka University. Based on this the team around Prof. Dr. Bernd Fröhlich developed this idea further and the IllusionHoleStation was created.

Process

My role in development was to create a decent furniture to provide all the fine tuning needed for the system. Beyond the hardware side, I also created a few software prototypes to show the multiuser capability.
The enclosure is made of plywood and provides active cooling for the monitor and the computer system as well as multiple adjustment features for height, focus and frustum as well as exchangeable holes.
