reacTable*




Toys

Originally uploaded by futileboy.

I saw this awhile back at a Target store. It’s a fake ipod like toy for kids. It actually is called “MP3 player”. It doesn’t seem to play anything other then it’s built in kids songs. The screen lights up with an iPod UI that is of course just a picture of the UI. The background however is a crazy psychedelic pattern that can change by twisting a knob on top.

I found this on Flickr. It is interesting in many ways. Not having Alt tags in this case gave the user to way to not navigate from it’s image based buttons. This is also bad for people using screen readers. I never thought Amazon was ADA compliant anyway, hospital side effects more about but at least I thought they tried.

reacTableThe reacTable* is a new type of musical instrument and way of interacting. It’s strengths come from its ease of use, esophagitis discoverability and collaboration.

The table works by using a video camera underneath which looks at the tables surface. There are objects that effect the sound based on their position, orientation and type. Using real time visual feedback, dynamic animations are projected on to the table. Very pretty.
