The objects displayed on a table can take multiple forms. In meetings, it is still very often printed paper although its content was originally created on a computer. The content can also be a a€œtablea€, but now in the mathematical sense, showing, e. g. , the budget of a project. Then, we have a a€œtablea€ on the table. Most often, the computer-generated contents are subject of frequent changes or dynamic in nature. It is a logical consequence to avoid the detour and the inherent media break by transforming the surface of the table into a display able to show media that are active and can be computer-generated and computer-controlled. At the same time, it is desirable to maintain the inherent features and affordances of working with the objects and the contents while sitting or standing around a table. Electronic Meeting Rooms On the basis of these and other elaborate considerations, we started to design in 1992/1993 an electronic meeting room in Darmstadt at GMD-IPSI (later Fraunhofer IPSI). The setup of our custom-built DOLPHIN-System consisted of a a€œtraditionala€ large rectangular wooden table with four physically integrated workstation-like computers with at screens. This set-up was complemented by linking a large ver- cal pen-operated interactive display, at that time the rst LiveBoard outside of Xerox PARC (two of which I was able to get to Darmstadt after my stay at Xerox PARC in 1990).Benko et al. used the change on the contact area to simulate the hover state for a touchscreen in a technique called SimPress [1]. ... Two fundamental problems with direct-touch finger input are that the usera#39;s finger occludes the target in the critical ... more recently, the Apple iPhone, 2 in which nearly the entire front surface is occupied by the screen and the size of the device is limited only by its display.
