Summary Perspective-Aware interfaces take into consideration where the user's head is positioned in relation to the displays, enhancing visibility of interface elements on oddly-oriented displays.
Description Nacenta et al. explore perspective-aware interfaces in their E-conic system, which tracks the locations of displays and the user’s heads in the environment to modify the position and the perspective of windows in order of generating an integrated view across different displays. Each window in the system has a set of controls for adjusting its shape and orientation. It is also possible to assign an owner of the window so that the system knows which user’s view a window should be optimized for.
