Project MGS multi-touch table interacts with your iPhone Video, Movies and Data

Thanks! Share it with your friends!

A bunch of German University students created an amazing multimedia and interactive design project called MGS which is essentially a way for you to access your iPhone Data and Multimedia on a Digital multi-touch Table simply by placing it on the Screen and easily interacting with it.

We know what you’re thinking — an iPhone interfacing with a Surface? The gods must be crazy. Well, it isn’t and they’re not, so relax. This custom-built, multitouch table of Apple interactivity comes from Computer Science undergrads Artem Vovk and Shuo Yang at the Technische Universit├Ąt Darmstadt in Germany. Aptly titled Project MGS (Media Gathering System), the system enables wireless transfer of your iPhone’s media to the infrared camera-equipped tabletop for some Java-based, gesture controlling fun. How does it know the phone’s on there? Simple — the table locates a barcode affixed to the back of your device and, after that, it’s just you and all the pinch-zooming, media-playing mayhem you can muster up. The project also supports file transfers between iOS devices, a feature destined for display in future videos. For now, the tech only plays nice with Apple-flavored mobile devices, but the pair promises it can easily make way for future Android connectivity. Hit the break for the full demonstration and its folksy backing track.

[Thanks, Shuo]
