The table had a big week last week. Marek finished adjusting the cameras and the lights in the table. He put the glass on and Jakub got the gesture recognition interface plugged into the table interface so we could see it working. Turns out the glass on the top of the table is actually two layers. The bottom layer is a peice of plexiglass with surface treatment on one side that leaves it rough but spreads the light out very nicely. The surface of the plexi is sensitive so you can’t touch it or it will get all smudged up and gross looking. So there is a peice of safety glass on top of the plastic to protect it. I snapped some picts with my phone of the table in progress. I ran out of battery though so Robin promised to post her pictures of people actually using the table.
Thats the table right before the glass went on. Someone mentioned before that it looked like a giant sea monster?
Well I told Nate about the sea monster comment so he felt compelled act out being eaten by the table.
That computer on the cart is the server for the two tables.
The table has got the plexiglass on it.
There is the projection on plexi.
