First Virtual Reality-Prototype

This first prototype emphasizes the design of the communication environment and the interaction with the Interactive Social Displays.

Using gesture and speech the user can interact with the ISDs in the virtual environment and establish connections to communication partners. The ISDs can be arranged in space to comfort the individual needs.

For communication the main channels audio and video are already supported. Also available in the prototype are first mock-ups (non-functional versions) of different visualization techniques, e.g., bars for presenting ordinal-scaled sources. As a special highlight a first version of the avatar Pasqual is embedded in the prototype. In later versions Pasqual will represent the systems estimation of the socio-emotional communication situation.
