Multi-touch hardware and software company Ideum is developing the Dynamic Desk, a projected capacitive touch table that can be used with both hand gestures and tangible objects. The technology is designed to be compatible with any projected capacitive touch screen.
For example, you can put your phone down on the screen and drag out photos to your desk to share them on social media, or drag documents from your desktop to your phone. Or, you can simply place a keyboard down on the surface and work on a document.
The Dynamic Desk is designed to be interactive without adding unnecessary steps to working processes. For example, you can place a camera on the desk, prompting it to bring up a photo-access interface.
