Emotionally Reactive Television
[HiTV]- Affective Interaction and Feedback Interface for TV
If you don't like the DVD/TV/Video program, just throw the HiTV Ball to it.
We introduce HiTV that enable affective interaction and feedback capabilities with TV. HiTV encourages people reacting to the TV contents with affective actions with a soft ball. When watching TV, a person can pick up the HiTV soft ball to toss around or throw the ball to hit the TV when s/he doesn't like the character or contents in the TV. As the ball hits the TV, the character inside the TV program will get visually distorted and scream. With HiTV, the interaction and feedback of the TV experience can be greatly enhanced by considering the affective actions of TV audience and fulfilling their expectation from emotional reaction.
