FairLift: Interaction with Mid-air Images on Water Surface



FairLift is an interaction system involving mid-air images, which are visible to the naked eye under and on a water surface. In this system, the water surface reflects the light from micro-mirror array plates, and a mid-air image appears. The system enables a user to interact with the mid-air image by controlling the image position of a light-source display from the water level measured with an ultrasonic sensor. The contributions of this system are enriching interaction with mid-air images and addressing the limitations of conventional water-display systems.
