Graphics, Visualization and Usability Center
Convocation and Demo Day

Student demonstrates the Smartboard, a developmental classroom technology

At the GVU Center Demo Day last month, graduate student Shwetak Patel tests out the new Georgia Tech Smartboard, a classroom-sized smartboard providing input-sensing capabilities over its entire surface, enabling research in large-scale interactive surfaces such as electronic whiteboards for classrooms and design studios. Doctoral student Jay Summet and associate professor Jim Rehg are developing a Virtual Rear Projection (VRP) technology to provide display capabilities over the entire surface, which will fill in shadows cast by people and do not cast blinding light into users eyes or annoying graphics onto their bodies.

The GVU Center celebrated more than 10 years of innovation and looked toward the future during its recent Convocation and Demo Day. The Convocation featured industry speakers and the popular annual demonstrations of student and faculty research projects. The event also served as a house warming as the GVU Center faculty, staff and students settle into their new home in the Technology Square Research Building.
