Japanese inventers have found another use for touchscreens: vending machines! "An embedded camera will recognize your gender and age, allowing the

attached to your particular circumstances."

For the graphic interface of our multitouch table, we will make short
animations of paper objects like an envelope, a cover, a folder... We use stop motion because of the tactile and
crafty look this technique will create. Today we prepared our studio
for the shooting and made some tests with different paper textures.

Augmented Shadow is a design experiment by Joon Moon. He produced an artificial shadow
effect through the use of tangible objects on a displayable
tabletop interface. His goal is to offer a new type of user-experience.
The project plays on the fact that shadows present distorted
silhouettes depending on the light.
