ABSTRACT SUMMARY:
The goal of my thesis is to boost the creative potential of flat screen monitors by developing an interactive display that shows distinct and separate moving images to more than one user at the same time. A second goal is to demonstrate the creative power of this display by making a responsive digital painting based on the flow of time. Research of past and current attempts to create a multi-view display reveals that merging a standard LCD with lenticular technology is the best method.   Download Thesis

"...Jeremy Newton's thesis project is an interactive multi-view screen that lets more than one viewer see and interact with a moving image or application on the same screen at the same time. Now little Annie can play Halo 2 while nerd child Danny does homework without infighting - interactive telecommunications meets domestic therapy, and no one gets hurt."






USER EXPERIENCE:



From a straight-on view, you see a
past scene of a boy in the park.


The pigeons fly around when you
approach. The more you move around,
the higher and wilder the birds fly.


Step to the side, and see a rainy
day in the future. The wilder the birds
fly in the past, the heavier the rain.
