Tabula is a Fiducial Marker triggered multitouch table, created as an installation at Connect-D an open-house exhibition at Tata Elxsi to celebrate the World Industrial Design Day. Tabula was created as an innovative way for people to engage with Tata Elxsi’s Portfolio, and explore the breadth of projects designed there. Each project was represented using a Fiducial Marker or “Project Puck”. Placing the Puck on the table, would bring up contextual information regarding that project, and users could browse through the different content.
I designed the software, graphics and the electronics communication. The software was built on a VVV patch which managed the touch library, fiducial marker recognition through the PS3 eye and the flash based interface.
