Robin Good: Back at the end of February Microsoft Research announced IllumiShare a new tool that enables two folks to share any physical or digital object on any surface.

 

Illumishare utilizes a lamp to light your desktop and a camera-projector right above it enables remote users to see what you are doing on it and vice-versa.

 

Steve Clayton writes: “IllumiShare uses a camera-projector pair where the camera captures video of the local workspace and sends it to the remote space and the projector projects video of the remote workspace onto the local space.

 

With IllumiShare people can sketch together using real ink and paper, remote meeting attendees can interact with conference room whiteboards, and children can have remote play dates in which they interact with real toys.”

Cnet reports: “Imagine having a real-time card game with a friend thousands of miles away without looking at a computer screen.

Microsoft Research is showing off IllumiShare, a virtual shared whiteboard that works on any surface.

 

Despite having the innocent appearance of a lamp, the low-cost device actually shares the surface it’s illuminating over the Internet.

 

This means you could sketch a portrait with someone else using real paper, or create a real-time dynamic learning scenario that enables a remote tutor to teach a child much more effectively than ever before.

 

You could even play a game of Canasta with your grandmother if you wanted to.”
