Information is becoming accessible everywhere in everyday life due of the spread of smartphones and portable personal computers; however, there are very few methods to access content in a bathing environment. We propose an interactive water-surface display system, which uses image-recognition techniques. The system supports intuitive interactions peculiar to water, such as poking a finger up from under the water surface, stroking the water surface, and scooping up water.
