We haven't setup a time yet for you to demo your project to me.  There's
only today and tomorrow remaining to do this, and it's required to
participate in the CHPC.  Are you planning on submitting?  Can we setup
a time to show me your project?

> Description: Tacchi Table is a full sized multitouch table, built with a modified 46" LCD TV.  It allows multiple users to interact in ways not previously possible.
> Implementation Plans: Tacchi Table is built by taking the LCD matrix from a tv, separating it from its backlight, lowering the backlight and placing infrared cameras in the middle.  Infrared light is shown in front of the surface of the screen, to illuminate objects on the screen but not interfere with the normal display.  The table is roughly 3.5' x 2.5' x 3' in size, and comes with a powerful computer and audio interface: An all-in-one solution!
> The goal of the project is to allow people to interact with a computer in a much more natural and personal way.  Future plans include a music application that utilizes this technology.
> All people who visit Seible Center will instantly be able to interact with the table as it requires no instructions or training!
> There are no existing Sieble infrastructures used.
