    IncreTable, Bridging the gap between real and virtual worlds



    IncreTable is a tabletop game inspired by the Incredible Machine. It provides a multi-modal interaction based on a bi-directional projection tabletop, digital pens, a depth camera, and custom-made physical objects, while attracting users for an active participation in creating content which diffuses the boundary between the real and virtual world.
