    Abstract

    A few communication systems that support a sense of connectedness among people who are physically separated recently have received attention. Our previous research has shown that bodily interactions enhance this sense of connectedness. In the current work, we designed two "Lazy Susan" Chair communication systems that can communicate bodily actions between physically separated people by way of rotations of the chairs on which they are sitting. One system is based on rotating a disk by hand, and the other is based on rotating the chair itself. The characteristics of these two systems are described, and the communication experiments to determine the relative effectiveness of the two systems are discussed.
