Mods:
Custom case with camera mounted above screen (basically)

I built this system as part of my disseration for the final year of my Computing Science: Software Engineering degree. Its basically a table based computer system with a camera pointing down at the screen and using pattern recognition it detects user interaction and with a piece of software I wrote images, video, audio and comments sent via bluetooth to the table are plotted on a map, its designed for collaborative interaction with multiple people using it at any one time and no matter what side of the table people are at the part of the interface that person is using rotates so its the right way up for them :)

While a touch to shoot game would be great I must point out that this is not a touch panel, it uses a camera to recognise patterns, there is not touch component to the system.

Also this isn't really designed as a practical system, its a research project designed to investigate possible techniques that could be used to make media interactions using computers a more collaborative experience ( not quite as fun i know ;P )

And thanks to everyone for the votes =D

Soon you will stand in front of your computer and wave your hands around like an orchestra conductor and all your enemies will drop like flies.

That's a great project... although touch sensitive screen would be tops.

Did you get you camera softare working... to accept movement. How did you deal with the "mouse click"?
