ABSTRACT
We introduce Dynamic Portals, a lightweight interaction tech-
nique to transfer virtual objects across tabletops. They main-
tain the spatial coherence of objects and inherently align them
to the recipients' workspace. Furthermore, they allow the ex-
change of digital documents among multiple users. A remote
view enables users to align their objects at the target location.
This paper explores the interaction technique and shows how
our concept can also be applied as zoomable viewport and
shared workspace.
