First prototype of the University of Regensburg with demo applications for the projection of cutting patterns and the “rewind” function.

In the research project “VIGITIA” (Networked Intelligent Objects through, on and around interactive tables in everyday life), the University of Regensburg, Bauhaus University Weimar and Munich-based EXTEND3D GmbH are now developing an intelligent lamp that projects information and digital tools onto dining tables, desks or work surfaces.

A first prototype from the University of Regensburg presents possibilities an interactive table can provide with two small demo applications. On the one hand, cutting patterns can be projected directly onto the table surface without first having to create templates. On the other hand, the table “remembers” all work steps. One can simply “rewind” with the corresponding controller. The demo applications are presented in more detail in the following project video:
