Turn any household object into a tablet styled gadget with UbiDisplays

Having the ability to control applications around your home is nothing new to the market, neither is being able to control multiple devices at the same time, thanks to more advanced smart remotes which can be wired all around your home. However, the ability to turn off your alarm clock using your bedpost and monitoring your social media channel via your coffee table are alien to us… well until now.

Enter UbiDisplays a toolkit currently in beta, which creates interactive displays using a projector and Microsoft Kinect. UbiDisplays gives its users the ability to drag and drop interactive web content onto your everyday household objects. The tool uses what is called a Javascript API, which allows displays to move around and appear when necessary. The unique aspect of this feature is it can detect your interaction method. Meaning you can set it so when you put your coffee mug down on your desk, it will automatically detect the mug and open up for example a news channel website.

Check out this video of how you could integrate UbiDisplays into your lifestyle.
