Laserpointer-interaction Between Art and Science

W. König, J. Böttger, N. Völzow, H. Reiterer


We employ Laserpointer-Interaction as an intuitive, direct and flexible interaction concept particularly for large, highresolution displays which enforce physical navigation. We therefore demonstrate general applicability and suitability by applying Laserpointer-Interaction to a wide range of domains – from scientific applications and formal experiments to artistic installations for the broad public.
