Various communication systems in shared space technology have been proposed to support remote spatial collaborative works with physical objects. The authors have focused on sharing bodily interactions with physical objects between remote places, and have developed "Lazy Susan" communication systems. We have applied our unique communication system to support remote collaborative works and proved that our communication system is useful to change spatial and positional relation between a remote physical object and local self. Moreover, in order to exploit the feature of "Lazy Susan" communication system, we have proposed three modes; Rotation, Magnifying and Personal mode, and implement visual tag interface as additional functions for a collaborative work. We discussed also uniqueness of our system in comparison to conventional communication systems and indicated its possibility.
