[060701] Created as part of the BBC Future Scenarios exhibition at BBC London in 2006, the Data Table lets users explore future trends of broadcasting through a physical interface.

The Table uses RFid tagged objects placed on a projected interface to access information. By placing different types of objects on the Table, tabs open up to show text, images and video related to Technology Trends, Audience Trends and a BBC Product Roadmap.

The Data Table was projected onto a two meters wide surface using two projectors. The final application was created in Director and was made in collaboration with Radarstation.

The Processing sketch shows the dynamic opening and closing of tabs. Click inside the applet to toggle tabs.
