Abstract

Mechanism to conduct a whiteboard based conference session using gyroscopic enabled mobile devices. The idea is to exploit the gyroscopic capability of handheld devices to scribble on web conference whiteboards. 1. The aspects of using gyroscopic capability of mobile phones to remotely scribble/ draw on web conference whiteboard. 2. Optionally, aspects 1 could be extended to any peripheral device with gyroscopic capability. 3. The aspects of using a mobile device for selecting a pen and other UI characteristics 4. The aspects of using a short range protocol as blue tooth and convert gyroscopic based action into a graphic event. 5. The aspects of using a browser plugin/conferencing client module which will interpret the data sent by mobile using the bluetooth protocol and convert it into equivalent white board action. 6. The aspects of using a browser plugin/conferencing client module to generate keyboard or mouse event on host device as generated by gyroscopic device 7. The aspects of clear marking the canvas by moving a mobile in special mode on to the projector screen 8. The additional aspects of using hand writing recognition module to interpret movement of mobile device as alphabets Advantages: This approach would give completely whole new dimension to the way whiteboards in web conference are used today, providing expeditiously effective systems..
