Tabula is an interactive multitouch table presented at Connect-D, an open-house exhibition at Tata Elxsi to celebrate the World Industrial Design Day.
As a team of interaction designers, we wanted audiences to learn about new experiential interaction models while engaging with the projects done at Tata Elxsi. We also wanted to give them a glimpse of the how we will be interacting with information in the future just around the corner. So we incorporated multitouch and marker recognition inside Tabula, for people to choose projects they wanted to know more about and interact with it anywhere on the table surface.
I designed the software, graphics and the electronics communications modules. The software was built on a VVV patch which managed the touch library, fiducial marker recognition through the PS3 eye and the AS3 based interface.
