Yuksel, Beste F., Donnerer, Michael, Tompkin, James and Steed, Anthony (2010): A novel brain-computer interface using a multi-touch surface. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2010 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2010. pp. 855-858. Available online

We present a novel integration of a brain-computer interface (BCI) with a multi-touch surface. BCIs based on the P300 paradigm often use a visual stimulus of a flashing character to elicit an event related potential in the brain's EEG signal. Traditionally, P300-based BCI paradigms use a grid layout of visual targets, commonly an alphabet, and allow users to select targets using their thoughts. In our new system a multi-touch table senses objects placed upon its surface and the system can highlight the objects on the table by flashing an area of light around them. This allows us to construct a P300-based BCI that uses a user-assembled collection of objects as targets, rather than a pre-determined grid layout. An experiment shows that our new paradigm works just as well as the traditional paradigms, thus highlighting the potential for BCIs to be integrated in a broader range of situations.

Sheridan, Jennifer G., Tompkin, James, Maciel, Abel and Roussos, George (2009): DIY design process for interactive surfaces. In: Proceedings of the HCI09 Conference on People and Computers XXIII 2009. pp. 485-493. Available online

This paper charts the design and build of two interactive tabletops that use infrared (IR) illumination techniques. One table implements fiducial tracking, whilst the other implements multi-touch tracking. Trade-offs in both designs are discussed to highlight key considerations when building an interactive table. Using three key dimensions from lessons learned, we conduct a comparative analysis of both approaches. Finally, we propose a DIY Design Process to assist designers in building their own interactive table.
