Research :: Tilt Displays


Tilt Displays provide visual feedback combined with multi-axis tilting and vertical actuation. Their ability to physically mutate provides users with an additional information channel that facilitates a range of new applications including collaboration and tangible entertainment while enhancing familiar applications such as terrain modelling by allowing 3D scenes to be rendered in a physical-3D manner. Our 3x3 custom built prototype allows use to examine the design space around Tilt Displays.
