Abstract

We present BendDesk, a desk environment that combines a horizontal and a vertical interactive surface that are seamlessly connected by a curved surface. This increases the perception of spatial cohesiveness and provides a continuous interaction. Furthermore, the curve functions as a storage for virtual objects and as a display for system events. The system avoids changing input modalities by supporting direct touch and pen input on the entire surface.

BendDesk is a research project by Malte Weiss, Simon Voelker, Jan Borchers from the Media Computing Group. It is funded in part through the German B-IT Foundation.
