To make sure that the webcam actually does its job I’ve been working on some infrared LED panels. Each panel features 36 940nm infrared LEDs. I’ve been working on making 4 of these panels.
Here’s a panel powered on.
After having the opportunity to play with Microsoft Surface first hand I immediately wanted to have one. However after I discovered the hefty price tag for one these tables and the fact that they are not yet available to consumers I decided to build my own. With some help from the great people at NUI Group I am well on my way to completing my new multi-touch coffee table for my living room. The table has been constructed and I am in the process of putting all the final parts together. Stay tuned for updates!
The main construction of the table is complete. I’ve constructed the box out of plywood and use 2×2′s for structural support on the sides. No nails were used around the frame of the table (just a lot of awesome glue).
