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. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1671011.1671074

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.
