Project MGS multi-touch table reads your iPhone’s media wirelessly
Computer Science students, Artem Vovk and Shuo Yang at the Technische Universität Darmstadt in Germany, have made a custom-built, multi-touch table to interact with all the media stored inside your Apple iPhone.
Project MGS (Media Gathering System) uses wireless connectivity between your iPhone and the infrared camera-equipped tabletop and displays all your media through its Java-based user interface where you can sift through all your content with a mere gesture. Cleverly, the simply table locates a barcode at the back of the iPhone and its ready to go; check the video below to see it in action:
The project also supports file transfers between iOS devices and there are plans from the tech duo to make it Android-friendly in the future. We have seen this type of technology with the Microsoft table a couple years back but will the Project MGS open the door for commercially-viable, multi-touch, surface table for the household?
