Here are some examples of interactive tables:

  • Reflect: A noise sensitive table: a conversation table with an embedded matrix of colored leds that react to the ambient noise. It translates discussions in a visual form and helps to make the interactions between people in a conversation clear.
  • The Fuwapica furniture: a circular coffeetable and four accompanying stools that take on the color of the objects that are on the table, thus setting the mood for the conversation. The stools also change their tint relative to the weight of the person sitting on them, the heavier the human, the darker the tone. When several objects are put on the table, the colors are blended together. The stools receive their color information wirelessly from the table and pulsate on the average human breathing rhythm.
  • Interactive Spaces’s Ambient Furniture: a touch-sensitive table designed to make a visit to the museum more interactive and offer a learning experience to the visitor through a variety of media.
