Microsoft LightSpace: multi-touch everywhere

A very interesting concept has been developed by Microsoft, extending the way of interaction we know from the multi-touch Microsoft Surface Table to the whole room. The video shows a scenario with one projector and several depth sensing cameras that create a unified 3D model. This system tracks not only finger movements, but the position and movements of people in the room. So each area within this room – furniture, floor, walls – can serve as a multi-touch surface; elements can be handled over from one person to another and then be displayed on another surface.

Of course, this scenario requires quite a lot of preparation and – I assume – system setup and configuration. But it surely is an interesting approach towards a more and more flexible way to share and interact with data in a multiple people scenario.
