Personalized View-Overlays for Tabletops
Multi-touch tabletops allow people to gather around them to visualize and interact with its contents in an intuitive and effective way. Imagine if, while you and your colleages interact with shared information, the tabletop could contain pieces of information (such as emails, pictures) that are only visible to you. Imagine if these personal contents
did not occlude or interfere with what the rest of the group could see. Imagine if these personal contents
could contain any type of media, even 3D stereo graphics, without the need of 3D glasses or any other devices. This vision has become possible with PiVOT: you can access everything you need to work collaboratively whilst still being able to work independently at the same time and on the same tabletop.
