Window Seat is an interactive furniture piece("chairware") that acts as a control mechanism for viewing and navigating remote or non-existent locations, such as a scale model of a building or virtual world. We built a rocking chair as an interface that controls the two axes of movement of a pan and tilt camera. A video projector and mirror are mounted on the chair to display the remote interior space onto the wall in the front of the chair for a virtual space immersion experience.
