Surface Ghosts: Promoting Awareness during Pick-and-Drop Transfer in Multi-Surface Environments

Date: 2015-06-29

This video demonstrates a new visual feedback design, called Surface Ghosts, to improve awareness of objects being moved between two networked multi-touch computer devices, in the context of a digital card game. An iterative design process led to the design of our Surface Ghosts design, which take the form of semi-transparent ‘ghosts’ of the transferred objects displayed under the “owner’s” hand on the tabletop during content transfer.
