On Friday, May 15, at 12:30pm, Scott Snibbe will be presenting the Social Immersive Media research paper published at CHI 2009 at Stanford University’s Seminar on People, Computers, and Design organized by Professor Terry Winograd. Scott will also present a variety of new interactive products and experiences from Snibbe Interactive and analyze them within the structure of the Social Immersive Media framework. See the talk webpage for more details. It may also be possible to watch this video online.
The talk abstract appears below:
Based on ten years of experience developing interactive camera/projector systems for art, science and culture museums, Snibbe will discuss a distinct form of augmented reality focused on social interaction: social immersive media. His work builds on the language of cinema, casting users as actors within simulated narrative models. He will discuss design principles and interaction techniques to create strong emotional responses and social engagement through visceral interaction. He will also describe approaches to clearly communicate cultural and scientific ideas through the medium, and how to promote specific distinct social behaviors in users.
