For interactive tabletops to become relevant, they need to be robust, inexpensive, ergonomic, high-resolution, and afford putting things on them. (Tweet this with link)

In order for interactive tabletops to become commercially and socially relevant, they would need to fulfill five requirements: allowing objects to be placed on them, affording to be used as an actual table, becoming affordable, being ergonomically usable, and offering sufficient display resolution. I propose interactive tabletops that employ top-down projection using laser projectors as a way to partially fulfill these requirements.
