Presentation of the Tangible Interactive Table for Archaeology

TITA

TITA, the Tangible Interactive Table for Archaeology (and Art), was presented to the public on November 16 at the Rubenstein Library (Duke University).

TITA is an open-source prototype of a digital-haptic (touch) device, designed for museums, and in general for the digital communication of archeological artifacts, monuments and sites, and art objects broadly. The aim is for the table to provide a unique and engaging interface between the museum visitor, and the breadth of digital content, modeled artifacts and virtual environments, being collected, hypothesized, and communicated by archeologists and other researchers, using the intrinsic affordances provided through interacting with physical objects and touch-based engagement. TITA is being developed as a very versatile platform and once deployed, it could work with different digital content (not just archeology and art).
