Visual displays are gradually improving, but our sense of touch is limited for most of the time to the feel of the keyboard and mouse.
What will our world be like in 2020? Digital technologies will continue to proliferate, enabling ever more ways of changing how we live. But will such developments improve the quality of life, empower us, and make us feel safer, happier and more connected? Or will living with technology make it more tiresome, frustrating, angst ridden, and security-driven? What will it mean to be human when everything we do is supported or augmented by technology? Why not break away, and wander in smart environments covered in living displays, or carry a system with you as an extension of your senses, augmenting vision? Let us raise the curtain between real and virtual world.

In this 2 days workshop we will explore the opportunities for surface and gesture computing with help of some live demonstration of surface + gesture computing where we will control our PC by just waving hands in air.
