Amphi Jade, Télécom ParisTech - 46 rue Barrault Paris 13 - Metro Corvisart (how to get there ?)
I will discuss the theoretical implications of the embodied perceptual and personal spaces in interactive tabletops and surfaces and presents InGrid, an Interactive Grid table. InGrid offers several affordances to the user that could not only interact with tangible and intangible objects but also with other users.
