iMUTS - Interscopic Multi-Touch Surfaces


Creating and evaluating interaction paradigms and models for stereoscopic projection surfaces
is the goal of this research project.

The project has been initiated and is maintained by
the Visualization and Computer Graphics Research Group (VisCG) at the University of Münster
and the Innovative Retail Laboratory (IRL) at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.
