Bathtub Touchscreen

Coffee as Viagra, car crushing, Tokyo in high-def and more in our weekly look at the web

Developers at Tokyo’s Koike Laboratory have managed to transform the surface of water in a bathtub into an “immersive” touchscreen. Utilizing a Kinect camera mounted above the tub, a projector, some waterproof speakers and a PC, these developers turned the water into an Aquatop. With Aquatop, you can play games against your rubber ducky with haptic feedback provided by the underwater speakers. Watch their video to get a taste of the experience.
