    Abstract

    This paper describes a methodology of a bidirectional I/O device design and introduces a unique interface FeelLight, which enables a simple and seamless communication among people in distant places. The authors focused on the following key issues of the development of interface for telepresence systems: (i) simplicity: simple tool and communication method (ii) affordability: affordance and embodiment of the interface, (iii) synchronicity: intuitiveness and connectedness, and (iv) creativity: emergence of communication.
