Title: Caretta: A System for Supporting Face-to-face Collaboration by Integrating Personal and Shared Spaces



by Kazuhiro Hosoi, Interaction Technology Laboratory, University of Tokyo



Abstract
We have developed a system called Caretta that integrates personal and shared spaces
to support face-to-face collaboration. We use PDAs and a multiple-input
sensing board for personal and shared spaces, respectively. Users of
Caretta can discuss and negotiate with each other in the shared space by
manipulating physical objects, while they individually examine their
ideas in their own personal spaces. Caretta allows users to participate
in group activities interchangeably and seamlessly using both these
spaces. Caretta is applicable to various collaborative tasks. User
studies of Caretta demonstrated that it allowed users to collaborate in
a flexible fashion: users could work individually in their personal
spaces at their own pace, cooperatively work together in the shared
space, and smoothly transition between both of the spaces.
