Microsoft Research has come up with a very cool concept for sharing information across several mediums when working in small groups by using Kinect, touch displays, mobile devices and computers). As its name indicates, Code Space has been originally designed to help coders/developers, but it could certainly work for other people too. With Code Space, developers can easily visualize and interact with a primary touch main display during a meeting. They can use Kinect air gestures, or they can use a mix of phone and gestures to move things around, draw, or highlight items. Users can also download specific pieces of content from the main screen to their laptop/mobile, edit them and send it back to the group, which can then approve the edits. And here’s my favorite feature: when Kinect detects two people in front of the main display, it splits the screen automatically. Watch the video below to get the details. [Channel9, white paper]
