Abstract

"Beyond-Me Site" is a 3D Mixed Reality (MR) gestural drawing system (Figure 1), for which two hands are used. Unlike other MR systems, the device does not require a Head Mounted Display (HMD). Instead, one hand holds the camera and the other hand holds the drawing pad.The HMD, which is widely employed in MR systems, has several problems for use in daily life, such as its cost and awkwardness. We present, therefore, a camera-based, low-cost solution to replace the HMD interface. In our system, the camera, which provides the optical input, is detached from the user's head and held in his or her hand.This style enables the user to move the viewpoint in real space without moving the whole body. We call this style: a "two-handed interface" (Figure 2). By having the interface "two-handed", two diverse tasks can be executed at the same time. If we were to think of a keyboard as being analogous to a piano, a "two-handed interface" would be analogous to an accordion. The goal of "Beyond-Me Site" is to find a handy and efficient way for 3D drawing in MR that can be widely adopted in daily life.
