The iVoLVER system (iVoLVER.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk), created by Gonzalo Méndez and designed by Gonzalo and myself received on Thursday 19 the ACM ISS Best Demo Jury Award during the conference, which took place at Brighton, UK.
iVoLVER is a web-based visual programming environment that enables anyone to transform visualizations that the find in-the-wild (e.g., in a poster or a newspaper) into new visualizations that are more useful for them.
Because iVoLVER is a fully web-based visual tool you can try it out yourself (works best with Chrome). Just go to http://ivolver.cs.st-andrews.ac.uk and click on “try it”. We are also working on expanding it and we will be releasing an API version shortly.
The ACM Interactive Surfaces and Spaces conference takes place yearly in different locations. Next year it will take place in Tokyo, Japan. The conference is a premier venue for work that studies how people interact in smart spaces and surfaces and how to design and engineering solutions for novel interfaces.
