The use of the interactive surfaces is an exciting and emerging research area. Display technologies, such as projectors, LCD and OLED flat panels, and even flexible display substrates, coupled with input sensors capable of enabling direct interaction, make it reasonable to envision a not-so-distant future in which many surfaces in our environment from tabletops, walls and floors will function as a digital interactive display. This cross-disciplinary domain brings together different technologies and backgrounds such as camera and projector based systems, new display technologies, multi-touch sensing, user interface technologies, augmented reality, computer vision, multimodal interaction, novel input and sensing technologies, CSCW, and information visualization.
