The Struktable is a multi-touch hardware solution provided by Strukt. It can be used for events or permanent installations with custom software developed for individual needs.
With its 70-inch display size, the Struktable is built for simultaneous interaction of 8 people and more. The touch-sensitive surface recognizes unlimited finger touches at the same time – therefore, users can interact more intuitively.
The portable design makes it versatile for diverse applications: product presentations at trade fairs, interactive gamestations at conferences or information terminals in public space.
The Struktable makes use of the FTIR (frustrated total internal reflection) effect. Therefore, infrared LEDs are placed around the acrylic top, and finger touches reflect the light into the camera on the bottom of the table. Only one PC is needed for tracking, gesture recognition and 2D/3D rendering of the GUI. A projector then projects the GUI onto the surface.
Applications for the Struktable are implemented in vvvv, a rapid prototyping software. The tracking algorithms have been realised by the Vienna University of Technology. Basic applications are ready for use, while custom software can be developed by Strukt on demand.
