A Proximity and Orientation Aware Video Playback Application

This application, built atop the proximity toolkit, controls video playback on a large screen and reacts accordingly to a number of implicit actions. It shows different views on video data depending on the user’s presence and proximity. It allows one to select and browse by touching or by pointing from a distance with a mobile phone.Sitting down and looking at the screen automatically enables video playback and other people that enter the room will be provided with additional information about the playing video. The system can recognize user actions, like making a call or looking away and pause the playback. For more information, http://grouplab.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/cookbook/index.php/Demos/ProximityVideo
