Abstract

We have previously described the Out Together Feeling as when two people, one indoors and the other outdoors, share an experience as though they were both outdoors together. Here, we describe a video-based communication system called WithYou2, which was developed to provide the Out Together Feeling equally to both indoor and outdoor users. Using WithYou2, the indoor user wears a head-mounted display (HMD) and watches live video captured by a 360° panoramic camera mounted on the outdoor user's shoulder. Thus, the indoor user can look around by simply turning his or her head. The outdoor user wears a partially transparent HMD and can see the image that the indoor user sees. We describe the results of field tests to evaluate the WithYou2 system, which showed that both users experienced the Out Together Feeling to a greater extent than with the WithYou system.
