The Virtual Whiteboard

Kukimoto Nobuyuki- Tohwa University

The Virtual Whiteboard extends LIMBO's capabilities by providing a shared writing slate within the collaborative environment. Rather than having the slate permanently fixed at one position, as in most implementations of virtual whiteboards, this slate is carried along with the participant as he/she traverses the virtual space. When the slate is activated by a participant the slate is drawn as part of that participant's avatar to indicate to others that the participant has his/her slate in sight. This slate can then be used to sketch diagrams or write kanji using the CAVE's wand.
