to imagine the future of interactive 3D media

Augmented and Virtual Reality systems provide a new infrastructure for crafting rich experiences for end users. However, building these systems can be tricky, let alone design features and interactions. In complex cooperation situations, the diversity of tasks can be very large. The main limitation to support this kind of situation with Augmented or Virtual Reality is that one device may be useful for some tasks, but less for others. For this reason, we argue that one single device is not enough to support cooperative situations. This is particularly true in the context of cooperative work, where actors with different roles and trades are involved.

The UMI3D Consortium is an Open Source project focused on the future of interactive 3D media. We intend to involve the entire AR/VR community in the creation of a technology that take a better advantage of the complementarities of the AR/VR devices. This will greatly enhance the support of cooperative work with AR and VR.
