Multi-Touch Table / ISH-07

After an initial idea by exhibition architects Echo ))) Kommunikation im Raum and communications agency mainfeld GbR, MESO Digital Interiors, Frankfurt designed and developed this interactive multi-touch table minus the touch.

Visitors to the fair learn facts & figures about the current energy debate by playing with a little universe of abstract glowing objects, which pop up at the flick of a finger.

Tracking the visitors' gestures with a robust and effective infrared tracking system from above, the table offers room for up to 8 simultaneous users.

Due to the nature of the optical tracking system from above, interaction works without the visitors even touching the surface - just a wave of the hand is enough to trigger the text infos and visual effects.

See the video and read the complete documentation on the project page.
