This interactive table will differentiate itself from previous technologies by focusing primarily on the manipulation of the users sonic environment via sensor input.
A short simple table surface, performed by sitting on the ground. Approaching from different sides my yield different results. I plan on utilizing a surrounding speaker array, most likely a cube, to create an immersive sound environment.
Sensors/Technologies to pursue as possibilities:
-sharp IR range finders
There are also possibilities of haptic feedback, projected visual feedback, and virtual reality environments to explore.
