Reflect is a meeting table system that shows who's dominating the conversation by monitoring the sound levels of people's conversations.

Reflect visualizes the current state of the conversation via arrays of color LEDs.

The design of Reflect is non-invasive. Participants do not need to wear any special equipment or even microphones, it's all embedded in the board. They can carry on their conversation regularly.

The LED feedback system is simple and cost-effective. It is purposely intended not to be an expensive hi-resolution display, as not to detract attention and be counter productive.
