Sure, you can make a multi-touch table out of just about anything these days, but it still always pretty impressive when a project comes together as nicely as this so-called Struktable multi-touch surface built by the folks at Struk Design Studio. Like some other rigs, this one relies on the FTIR (or frustrated total internal reflection) effect, which makes use of some infrared LEDs placed around the edge of the display, and a mirror and a short-throw projector to actually display the image on the surface. As you can see in the video after the break, that works remarkably well, with the table able to support up to eight simultaneous users and "unlimited finger touches" at the same time (we'll let you do the math there). What's more, while the table is one of a kind at the moment, the folks at Struk are more than happy to build more if the price is right, or simply rent out the one they have if you're on a bit more of a budget.
