“MisTable is a tabletop system that combines a conventional horizontal interactive surface with personal screens between the user and the tabletop surface.”
“[T]he personal screens preserve all well-established tabletop interaction techniques like touch and tangible interactions.”
The MisTable is just another example of designers realizing that conventions of screens can be improved and reworked. If there is technology that transforms the way we interact with digital content, why don’t we use it? Imagine if a whole room was misty with screen content. What could we do then?
