From Table–System to Tabletop: Integrating Technology into Interactive Surfaces
Kapitel i bok, 2010

Teamwork for generating new ideas is typically done on vertical or horizontal interaction spaces in order to capture volatile ideas by generating digital content that can be used during ongoing work. While many products are available for vertical interaction spaces, tabletop interaction is still subject to ongoing research and development. The following article gives a classification of existing tabletop systems according to the type of interaction, the means of tracking and identification, and the method of displaying images. Then, the challenges faced by researchers and the motivations behind their endeavors are discussed. We describe the evolution of this technology by citing important projects and their significance in the overall development of interactive tabletop surfaces. Finally, we give an outlook on future trends in this research field.
