Short papers / Possi(A)bilities: Augmented Reality experiences of possible motor abilities enabled by a video-projected virtual hand
- Abstract: We introduce “Possi(A)bilities,” an Augmented Reality concept and system that presents users sitting at a table with animated visualizations of a virtual hand projected on the tabletop next to the user’s own hand. As a combination of possibilities and abilities, possi(a)bilities focus on the motor abilities of the human hand in the synchrony between the physical and the virtual, and constitute into a medium for examining and reflecting on the nature of diverse abilities that become possible when transcending the physical world and the individual’s agency. Ultimately, possi(a)bilities question assumptions, norms, and accepted definitions of motor ability and skill in the context of hybrid, physical-virtual worlds.
