MisTable

Working interactive tabletop display prototype projects onto mist, allowing to ‘reach into’ the display space and manipulate 3D content with gestures - video embedded below:

MisTable is a tabletop system that combines a conventional horizontal interactive surface with personal screens between the user and the tabletop surface. These personal screens, built using fog, are both see-through and reach-through. Being see-through provides direct line of sight of the personal screen and the elements behind it on the tabletop. Being reach-through allows the user to switch from interacting with the personal screen to reaching through it to interact with the tabletop or the space above it. The personal screen allows a range of customisations and novel interactions such as presenting 2D personal contents on the screen, 3D contents above the tabletop or augmenting and relighting tangible objects differently for each user. Besides, having a personal screen for each user allows us to customise the view of each of them according to their identity or preferences. Finally, the personal screens preserve all well-established tabletop interaction techniques like touch and tangible interactions. We explore the challenges in building such a reach-through system through a proof-of-concept implementation and discuss the possibilities afforded by the system.

This is some cool exploratory work around interactive 3D content.

Be curious. Read widely. Try new things. I think that a lot of what people call intelligence just boils down to curiosity.

Frankie Manning and Erin Stevens 1989 (by EastlakeZoo)

So lovely to see this 1989 clip of Erin Stevens and Frankie Manning dancing so wonderfully for a whole song.

Ever hear of Open Source furniture?  Now you have.  Great concept.

Furniture is probably the last thing on the mind of most open source proponents but now it doesn’t have to be. OpenDesk is a free, open source line of furniture that you can make yourself or order unassembled from a maker with a CNC machine. Not only is the furniture cheap – free if you have the wood and hardware – it’s actually cool-looking.


Love this. So much!
