On the Impact of Non-flat Screens on the Interaction with Public Displays

With decreasing prices for display technologies and bendable displays becoming commercially available, novel forms of public displays in arbitrary shapes emerge.

We present findings from an initial study with cylindrical displays and discuss to what extent findings can be generalized towards other forms of public displays. VIEW FULL PAPER
