BrightBoard: A Video-Augmented Environment

Quentin Stafford-Fraser, Peter Robinson
The goal of the 'Augmented Reality' concept is to bring computational power to everyday objects with which users are so familiar that the user interface to this computational power becomes almost invisible. Video is a very important tool in achieving Augmented Reality and recent camera-manufacturing techniques make it an economically viable proposition in the general marketplace. BrightBoard is a system which uses a video camera and audio feedback to enhance the facilities of an ordinary white board, allowing a user to control a computer through simple marks made on the board. We describe its operation in some detail, and discuss how it tackles some of the problems common to these 'Video-Augmented Environments'.
