The opening for the Show PDX furniture competitions was last night. It was interesting to hear crowd feedback on multi touch. I kept it simple and ran some of the demo apps from Touche and Smoke for the rest of the night. I didn’t have internet I wanted to show off the rotary phone designed by MattL. Here are some pictures of the table and I will have a video of it in action soon. Thanks NUI for everything.
Do any of you use any type of heat absorbing material to keep your tables from venting as much hot air. I have four fans in the table but I was thinking that it might make sense to trap the heat in a meta tool. You could then theoretically send that energy back into your tables electrical.
This is what our curatorial card read:
The Æ-Table is a functional workspace for multi touch (MT.) The tables constructed to a high aesthetic while providing an eloquent station for modeling MT programming environments. MT is a new and blossoming field that leaves many questions unanswered about the future of Human computer interaction. The table works in two light spectrums: visible and Infra Red to create a feedback loop that monitors user interaction. This project would not be possible without open source communities such as Natural User Interface, reactable (a music table project),and many others.

Also I’m headed to Frankfurt, Brussels, Berlin and Amsterdam next Friday. PM me, lets meet up for a talk on multi touch, brews or a cup of joe.
