CHEIRO









Abstract

People use text to communicate in online spaces because of its directness and ease of use. However, we are unable to convey many social cues and communication nuances by text. Our question is how to enhance the richness and expressiveness of text, so that we can have an expressive and intuitive online environment for textual communication.

Cheiro is a chat space offering a novel form gesture-enhanced textual communication over the computer-mediated environment. It provides an intuitive interface for turning the form of text into an expressive visual medium; it is an experimental arena for exploring the relationships between gestures, emotions, and visuals.
