IEEE Tabletops and Interactive Surfaces 2008 Posters
Many research efforts today explore how digitally augmented tables enable face-to-face interaction with digital content and applications. Yet the design of digital tables is still largely driven by the constraints and requirements of the underlying sensing technologies and digital systems. In order to move digital tables into real-world physical spaces, researchers need to work closely with architects and industrial designers in order to engage the knowledge and skills from a long history of physical design and fabrication. Architales is an interactive story table for gallery exhibition developed as an experiment in the physical/digital co-design of the physical table and environment with the digital story system and content.
