Funky Wall · Presenting Asynchronously

The Funky Wall is a wall-mounted display tool that supports presenting mood boards.

The Funky Wall uses four ranges of interaction depending on the designer’s proximity to the wall display: showing, contemplating, replaying, and exploring. Different tool functionalities are available in each range. The designer records their presentation by gesturing and explaining in front of the screen, using their hands to point or outline specific areas of the mood board. The tool automatically records three essential aspects of the mood board presentation (i.e., gestures, speech, and visuals, which are used to split the presentation into a number of meaningful segments by looking into hand location, gesture acceleration, and speech pauses. The tool supports two-way communication between designer and client by allowing them both to provide input by creating a presentation, and to share their thoughts by providing feedback.
