Abstract

In this paper, we propose device "POCOMZ" to experience community based "Connection" as a lighting in a real space. Community members' present situation is reflected to POCOMZ as illumination of light, and the lighting changes by the change in member's situation. The public space and a private one's own space will be produced by "Connection" with others through this device.In this research, the device working with Instant Messaging system is designed to display, transmit and share users' presence information as an ambient environment message in the real space.Communications by the change in the ambience (atmosphere of the environment) are demonstrated by using the user presence shared on the internet as a lighting in a real space."Connected Feeling" caused by the communications of ambient presence through the device will be suggested as the way of new entertainment communications.
