Change your coffee table into a touch screen tablet with the Microsoft Kinect

Ever thought of turning your table into a large tablet or changing your wall into an interactive display.
The Microsoft Kinect is an XBOX accessory that is primarily meant to track the body movements of a gamer. This device has however been used for many more advanced things after having it ported to a Windows PC. 

Ubi Interactive's software has made the sensor of the kinect able to track and detect movements users make on the projected image. Interactions are the same as any tablet or smartphone, including launching icons by tapping on them and expanding areas with pinch-to-zoom.
