Title:


    Tablescape Plus: Upstanding Tiny Displays on Tabletop Display

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 31


Description:


    Placing physical objects on a tabletop display is common for intuitive tangible input. The overall goal of our project is to increase the possibility of the interactive physical objects. By utilizing tabletop objects as projection screens as well as input equipments, we can change the appearance and role of each object easily. To achieve this goal, we propose a novel tablescape display system `Tablescape Plus’ (see Figure 1). Tablescape Plus can project separate images on the tabletop horizontal screen and on vertically placed objects simultaneously. No special electronic devices are installed on these objects. Instead, we just attached a paper marker underneath these objects for vision-based recognition. Projected images change according to the angle, position and ID of each placed objects. In addition, the displayed images are not occluded by users’ hands since all equipments are installed inside the table.
