This page provides access to a number of video
clips illustrating work that I have been involved with over the past 20+
years. I will keep adding to it as time permits. With each
video, I have tried to provide a date, as well as cross-references to research
papers that are related to the video contents. Virtually everything
that I have published in my research career is available on-line, and can
be access from Buxton Research Papers.
Please note that you are encouraged to
copy and share any of this material for non-commercial, educational, and

cinematic form in general, are critical to helping foster better communication
As usual, comments and suggestions are
|I have split the videos among
a number of different pages, each encapsulating a particular period of
my research. I will add new pages as I have time to digitize and
arrange the relevant material.
Structured Sound Synthesis Project (SSSP)
||The SSSP was a computer music
project that I started at the University of Toronto around 1975 and directed
until it wound down around 1984.
Research Group (IRG)
||The IRG grew out of the SSSP.
It emerged around 1984, and was especially active from 1989 to about 1995.
It did a lot of work that helped increase our understanding of theories,
techniques and technologies around input and interaction with computer
Telepresence Project (OTP)
||The OTP (circa. 1990-94) grew out of work
that I was involved with at Xerox's Cambridge EuroPARC, and Xerox PARC,
as well as research at the Dynamic Graphics Project at the University of
Toronto. The OTP was a project in rich media supported collaborative
||I became Chief Scientist of Alias
Research (later Alias|Wavefront, and now Alias Systems) in June of 1994,
and resigned in December 2002. During that time, my research group
- which largely grew out of the IRG - did a lot of interesting research
in the areas of input and interaction, especially in the domain of computer
