Virtual Shelf: Sharing Music Between People and Devices

Digital media are more and more present in our lives, but we are still waiting for interfaces and devices completely adapted to this content. In this paper, we present the virtual shelf, an application dedicated to interact with our digital music collection. Our concept is to visualize our music collection in a familiar environment, a classic CD shelf, and to interact with it in a natural way, using the well-known drag-and-drop paradigm: you can drop an album in your friend's shelf to automatically add it to his/her personal music collection, or you can drop it on a close sound player in order to play the selected album on this device.
