Fujitsu Develops User Interface Technology

The Technology Converts Entire Rooms into Digital Spaces

Fujitsu Design and Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory plans to commence field trials on Fujitsu Laboratories-developed user interface (UI) technology that converts an entire room into a digital space, and on a co-creation support application developed by Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory. The trial will be conducted from August at the HAB-YU platform, a venue developed by Fujitsu Design to facilitate new value-creation initiatives.

Space-digitalizing UI technology will help people from the small screens of smart devices, tablets, and PCs to project a virtual window system over a large shared space, such as walls and tables, letting people display and share information with simple operations.

Using the co-creation support application, which implements this new UI technology, materials that people bring into a space can be displayed and shared in a large format so that information can be easily organized when people are brainstorming or collaborating.

The trial of the technology would be done with consideration to the following:

  • Distribution of digital prompt cards to individual workspaces
  • Individual work support (creation of digital sticky notes and transfer to shared space)
  • Group work support (organization and sharing of digital sticky notes)
  • Bringing home results of workshop brainstorming
  • Storing and reproducing workshop results

Features of the technology Include:

  • Connects multiple projectors and easily links smart devices
  • Sensing technology recognizes the positions of personal smart devices and identifies IDs
  • Intuitive UI technology connects people’s movements to the big display
  • These technologies open up a new natural interface for using a variety of applications in a large space that responds to the ways people move, and facilitates the sharing and exchanging of information between people to accelerate co-creation. The technologies have potential applications beyond workshops and other co-creation venues. They can also be used for spatial design in showrooms, hotel entrances, and other scenarios.
