Computing Table Tops

touch screen fingerprint readerWe saw demonstrations of tabletop computing nearly a decade ago at several labs.  Yet the format has not taken hold, though a few systems are still available.  At the time I did think that this would be the future of the interface,  along with walls that we could gesture to and use as large scale displays.  Yet integrating furniture with displays is not mobile, nor do tables and displays get updated at the same rate.    We saw a similar conclusion when a number of manufacturers put displays on kitchen devices like refrigerators.
