English abstract:
Large, high-resolution display spaces are usually created by carefully aligning multiple monitors or projectors to obtain a perfectly flat, rectangular display. In this paper, we suggest the usage of imperfect surfaces as extension of personal workspaces to create ubiquitous, personalized information spaces. We identify five environmental factors ubiquitous information spaces need to consider: 1) user location and display visibility, 2) display gaps and holes, 3) corners and non-planarity of the display surface, 4) physical objects within and around the display surface, and 5) non-rectangular display shapes. Instead of compensating for fragmentations and non-planarity of the information space, we propose a ubiquitous information space manager, adapting interaction and window rendering techniques to the above mentioned factors. We hypothesize that knowledge workers will benefit from such ubiquitous information spaces due to increased exploitation of spatial cognition.
