I’ve been a member since June and I believe nuigroup is one of the best forum communities I ‘ve ever seen.
I thank creators of this forum, everybody for sharing all the valuable info with me and especially Fairlane for his great help with everything through pm’s.
I am planning to develop applications with my table eventually. First of all i need to learn some flash and AS3 though :D
My table’s dimensions are roughly 60cm(l)x80cm(h)x60cm(w) and screen size is around 60cmx45cm roughly again.
Box is made up of 12mm MDF from bunnings. One of my graphic designer friends donated the vinyl and other one covered
the box with it which gives a smooth glossy finish.
Screen/Diffuser: I used acrylic and white plastic table cloth as a diffuser and projection surface from Warehouse in Melbourne.
I tried clear frosted film and frosted glass but I think this table cloth thing is better projection wise. I’ll try different materials in the future and report here.
Projector: Projector is Sharp Xr-10x. I bought it with a burnt lamp then changed
the bulb with a new one from china which costs 50$ shipped . this bulb has 60-70% brightness of the original. you get 100% brightness with most projectors though.
IR Illuminators: I used 4x of 48 led illuminators from china bought a 12V 2A power supply with 4 outputs. I think I’ll get another one to illuminate
the center which should give better coverage.
Camera: I used Xbox live vision cam after Fairlane’s suggestion. It’s very easy to remove the filter. I used 2 layers of exposed film.
Mirror: Mirror is a 4$ mirror from warehouse. it makes ghosting but not that much.
Fans: two 120mm fans. one is intake the other is out-take (what is the word?)
I know I need grilles for them
the box is also 4 wheel drive with four furniture wheels from bunnings
Computer: it’s an intel E4300 (1.86ghz) overlocked to 2.7ghz (you could go up to 3.2ghz, but heats thing up )
2gb ram and nvidia geforce 7600gt graphix card connected thorough dvi to vga adapter.
Touchlib screen capture:
Inside the Box:
Table cloth I bought from warehouse (it’s a supermarket chain)
And the Video showing inside the box and some applications running:
Sorry no audio or a song at the moment will come later on
This should take you to the better quality video.
it might take a little bit to load. Also you could try normal version below.
