A multicultural exploration into research and education for surface computing

This project is about allowing users to exchange artifacts and information between a digital tablet and a shared digital tabletop. We used a board game scenario to try different techniques we designed that offered different levels of feedback to the user. We aimed at improving their awareness of the data transfer.

The goals of this mission are:

  • Investigating the transfer techniques between multiple displays
  • Improving the awareness if users during a data transfer
  • Making a better use of private and shared surfaces and smoother interactions between them
