T(ether) is software that lets a user interact with their environment through movement. It works with utilizing the idea of head tracking and orientation tracking. This creates an interactive environment in which the user may physically move around a virtual object and manipulate the object with another user.
According to the site the project can be best summed up as:
“T(ether) creates a 1:1 mapping between real and virtual coordinate space allowing immersive exploration of the joint domain. Our system creates a shared workspace in which co-located or remote users can collaborate in both the real and virtual worlds. The system allows input through capacitive touch on the display and a motion-tracked glove. When placed behind the display, the user’s hand extends into the virtual world, enabling the user to interact with objects directly.“
This technology is truly a “tether” between virtual and real space.
(The video for the software is no longer public, but hopefully we will be seeing more videos on T(ether) in the future.)
