ABSTRACT
This paper introduces DisplayObjects, a rapid prototyping
workbench that allows functional interfaces to be projected
onto real 3D physical prototypes. DisplayObjects uses a
Vicon motion capture system to track the location of
physical models. 3D software renditions of the 3D physical
model are then texture-mapped with interactive behavior
and projected back onto the physical model to allow real-
time interactions with the object. We discuss the
implementation of the system, as well as a selection of one
and two-handed interaction techniques for DisplayObjects.
We conclude with a design case that comments on some of
