Most current interactive group workspaces are prohibitively expensive and difficult to install and use. At the same time, the demand for such spaces is rising dramatically along with the increasing number of electronic media-based meetings, presentations, projects and papers. Teamspace is a prototype for a public interactive workspace designed to be easy for novice users to understand and learn. It addresses the challenges of economics, installation, recovery, robustness and reliability in a way that simplifies and empowers the group work user experience.
