PaperThin


What if every surface in a room is interactive? What if the room becomes a computer? PaperThin aims to transform any surface into a flexible/foldable interactive display. It uses a depth camera to find surfaces in the scene and a projector to transform and project content in real-time onto the surfaces.

Working Applications:

Since the surface can be mapped and localized in the camera space, the flex map can be created and projection can be warped accordingly. This allows us to display output in response to the user's and surface's movement.

  1. Gaming:
    • A 3D ball is shown on a wooden board. This responds to the tilt of the surface making it an interactive experience.
    • The famous egg catching game is implemented in a more interactive manner. The eggs fall, and the player must catch it on the paper sheet. The fall of the egg is shown by the shadow. If the user fails, the egg cracks simulating the amount of damage done according to the height.
  2. Cross-sectional Visualization:
    • The system responds to the depth at which the surface is held showing different visualizations
    • A natural user interface interaction is created using Google Earth, where the map can be zoomed in and out by the user.
    • A cross-sectional visualization of the MRI scan of a brain can be used by doctors for a more tangible diagnosis.
    • A person's lifetime can be shown by displaying pictures of different ages at different heights.
