Blue eye table blurs the analogue and the digital


A few days ago Johhny posted about the touch screen monitor from Wacom. While that product is available today, here's an amazing prototype called "Blue Eye" that is still far from a commercial release, but shows a glimpse of the possibilities for the future.

Created by researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, the Blue Eye table is made of glass with a camera mounted overhead and a projector underneath. You can place analogue objects or pictures on the glass and take digital pictures of them, which are instantly projected onto the glass. Then, the user can manipulate, move, stretch and give motion to the images.

The video provided on the TechE Blog site gives a great demo of the Blue Eye table.
