Though a bit late to mention this, I’ve been working a whole year on my masters thesis which is about using a tabletop in a practical scenario. The scenario I’ve chosen is the search for related books in our campus library. You can review all of the work I’ve been doing and some movies on my thesis blog at http://www.michaelvanderheeren.be/?cat=16.

There is also an English poster and a short English article about the work I’ve done. A small video capture of the application is available at Youtube and some more video footage is coming.

I’m currently in the process of completing the writing for the master thesis which will however be in Dutch. If you’re interested in more, feel free to ask!
