Interactive touch sensitive surface


Flux

Flux designed by Media Interaction Lab, is an interactive touch sensitive surface that can be used either as an interactive table and/or as a digital whiteboard. The surface is based on a rear-projection screen providing both multi-touch and multiple pen interaction with individual identification.

Flux’s application interface is automatically optimized for the intended use depending on its orientation. Flux can be used as a sketch board, a discussion table or a white-board. Transformation between different orientations is single handedly achieved easily and elegantly. Rear projection, in conjunction with FTIR and Anoto pen tracking allows multi user, multi modal interaction in every configuration.



Flux has the following novel features:

* transition between multiple hardware/user configurations
* Optimized user interface based on the configuration and hence intended use
* Breakthrough multi modal input possibilities with independent, simultaneous hand and pen tracking
* Completely separate, individual and simultaneous interaction facilitated with pen(user) recognition

The authors of Flux claim that the system provides unmatched flexibility and capability in setup, use and user input and that it will set the path for a new generation of interactive surfaces!

This is a fascinating development - a definite leap from static computer screens to interactive display. It seems to me that this technology is getting pretty close to the screens and holograms on Star Trek. Very cool!
