Interactive art therapy
A multi-touch coffee table based on FTIR technology. Software on the table replicates real world properties of finger painting, allowing therapists to set up un-supervised sessions for people with dementia. The coffee table is similar to the Sage project, but includes a compliant surface and infrared camera in the unit. Software written in C#. Further information can be viewed at Tom Batindale's blog page.
Patrick Olivier's blog space was the main resource page that led me to todays findings. It can be found here, Patrick Olivier.
