PlaySurface at Home !
I just received and mount my PlaysSurface from KickStarter’s project ! According to to Michael White I’m the only one in France :-). Shipping was more expensive than product itself ! I’m fool !
Some photos !
The fabric is very good, mouting was easy. I do not like the back door that lay on the ground. Not very convenient to calibrate projector. The plexiglass seems to be very delicate and get all bread crum.
Inside the beast !
The projector is very complicated to setup. I use the official one ! With my old Windows Vista computer. There is lots of heat.
At the moment, the blob board software is not ready. It should be plugged to the PS Eye for blob recognition. In the meanwhile there is touch software for PS Eye. Calibration software seems not working (error 0xC0150002) 🙁 I should reinstall a proper windows.
I wanted a Surface Table for many reasons and I had one for my birthday (May the 4th be with you) !
The table is very cheap! There is many way to build a surface table:
- Microsoft Table worth 8000 $
- Olivier Carreno did lots of impressive work with TV and Projectors
I could, at last, understand UX on surface table. It’s really not the same way to build GUI. You have to think like Fish Eye display.
I’m really exited about the possibility to do fiducial recognition.
The projector resolution 800×600 is very low. I assume blob recognition will consume CPU and can’t handle large resolution (Like with S.A.R.A.H.).
There is LOTS of heat and noises in the table.
You boot the table when you really need to (it’s not an iPad)
I’ll wait for blob board software.
I’ll try to make touch recognition work… May be buy a smaller Windows 8 PC… And then really testing (but S.A.R.A.H. takes me many time)
- HTML5 touch application
- Roll20.net experience
- Holographic effects

Sympa dit donc cette table ! Si c’est pas indiscret pour avoir tout ça elle t’a coûte combien au final avec le port ?
J’ai backé le projet à 650$ + 550$ de Frais de port + 50€ de douane + 400€ de Vidéo proj + récup d’un PC et beaucoup de temps et de patience :-).
Ca me rappel Hunted S01E01:
