See-Through Environments

See-Through Environments project exploring the boundaries between physical and digital world with see-through metaphors is a two year (2013/10-2015/9) research project. This small strategic opening is implemented collaboratively with VTT and is funded by the Finnish national funding agency (Tekes).
The project visions a future, where the limits of physical reality are overcome by introducing technology solutions, interaction metaphors, applications and services that enable the illusion of see-through materials which make the invisible information visible for human eyes.

Research objectives

The research focuses on the following key research themes:
  • Disappearing walls and physical boundaries of objects,
  • Morphic illuminated spaces which can transform in shape,
  • Ad hoc connected spaces with small projector-sensor modules.
The project includes a strong user centric design aspects. The key technologies in the project used as the underlying technology infrastructure are distributed sensors, small projector modules, and printable electronics.
