SURFACE COMPUTING IN ACADEMIA Multi User Interaction: In Academia’s PerspectiveMicrosoft Surface provides a very good advantage as itprovides us Multi Touch &Multi User environment. E.g.Multiple Students could Use and do Different things at a single time.Interactive and Easy to Use: It is very Interactive andeasy to use in a sense that from even a school boy to an adult it provides an easy touch of understanding in its usability and interface. Also as a user there is no such requirement of any prior knowledge of the Computer and Even Some one quite naive to technology can
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENTIt Consists of two main Building blocks Hardware Software Hardware Our hardware consists of Wooden Table Webcam IR LEDS with 850 nm wave length Projector 12v power supply
CONTINUED… Computer Tracing paper Acrylic Sheet Mirror SOFTWAREThe software that we used for hardware interfacing is an open source software that is Community core Vision version 1.4. For the hardware to work properly in windows 7 we had to install multi touch drivers for windows 7For running flash applications on our hardware we used Adobe Shockwave and Flash player.
