Video: Water surface becomes interactive touchscreen, via Kinect

Thanks to designtaxi.com for highlighting this one – water-based touch screens. They are dubbed an “immersive” experience, geddit?Apparently, the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo has prototyped an interactive touchscreen on the surface of water in a bath.Designed to provide digital entertainment during bath time, where users do not have to worry about damaging their smart devices with water, the system that makes the “Aquatop” possible consists of a Kinect camera mounted over the tub, a projector, some waterproof speakers and a PC.By dipping their fingers into the water, users turn their digits into cursors that can be used to play games, organise photographs and watch videos on this innovative touchscreen.
