MemTable is an interactive touch table that supports co-located group meetings by capturing both digital and physical interactions in its memory. Everyone can be a scribe at the MemTable. The goal of the project is to demonstrate hardware and software design principles that integrate recording, recalling, and reflection during the life cycle of a project in one tabletop system.
Memtable poses an important question to HCI designers: How can the multi-person interactions we design be integrated with our work practices into systems which have history and memory? What is the social computing space of the future?
