Telepresence Workshop, Omnidice (Work in progress)

After 2 days, here are the picture of the work in progress for these projects.
We will not focused too much onto them here as they have less speculative design potential than the others.

SkypePuppet – controlling remotely an arm coming out from the screen
Here are some images of our first idea.

Abstract: The project proposes an omniscient access to 6 peripheral vies of one conference room or appartment room. You can switch between views on an mobile phone app by moving a cube (using augmented reality).
Issues: not really a critical design project, except if used in the home, we can see the issue of surveillance, again, like often.
These issues are connected to my topic of the feeling of absence/presence, but not directly, therefore we did not spend to much time on it during the workshop session, we will come back to it later.

Work in progress
Omnidice – cubical remote control to access various telepresence webcam in a room




Taking 6 videos from 6 different angles (bottom, top, left, right, face, back) in order to navigate them by controlling the cube remote control.


Mounting the rushes


Looking for a visual aesthetic (for the app logo and the cube design)





First working prototype we produced




Second version of the prototype (aesthetic)
