IdenTTop: A Flexible Platform for Exploring Identity-Enabled Surfaces

Only a subset of tabletop designs support the ability to determine which user has performed a given action. These identity-enabled (IE) surfaces offer significant functional advantages over systems with no such capability. Distinguishing between the two types of surfaces enables a valuable discourse that should serve to improve the usefulness of all tabletop designs. To facilitate examinations of the IE design space, we developed a toolkit called IdenTTop that greatly simplifies the process of prototyping new IE applications, and we present a few sample applications to demonstrate IdenTTop’s effectiveness.
