The Kinect™ Multi-touch gaming table project explores the feasibility of using the Kinect™ to enhance the experience of table top gaming over a long distance. Unlike traditional software based implementations that offer a purely virtualized version of the game, the table is designed to accommodate the manipulation of both real and virtual objects. The sensor technology allows manipulation of these objects in a natural way, not mapped to buttons or keyboard commands. Combined with telepresence capabilities, the table can simulate a table top gaming environment akin to a traditional tabletop gaming session.
