Blue Eye is a new high-tech table which copies the images of the objects on its surface. Once printed, the images can then easily be manipulated, extended and also animated. “You can take objects, put them onto the board and they are instantly imported into the digital screen” says Bastiaan Ekeler from Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands “When an object is placed on top of the table, the digital camera overhead captures an image and software cuts around it by distinguishing it from the background. Existing digital images can also be added to the system by dragging them into a computer folder on a connected computer”
