A collaborative infrastructure for stereoscopic collaboration in augmented and projective environments (Scape) was developed. The system enables users to view the task from their individual perspectives, have equal and natural access to the task, perceive the presence of local and distant members, communicate by verbal and nonverbal means and dynamically switch focus between the shared workspace and interpersonal communication space. A custom-designed cross-platform application programming interface (API) allows high and medium-level controls over the Scape workspace. It was stated that implementing an auto-collaborator class enables a developer to build a augmented virtual environments with minimal coding.
