Abstract

BendDesk is a curved interactive display that merges a vertical and a horizontal multitouch surface with a curve. Users sitting at the table can perform multi-touch input on the entire surface. This demo shows the capabilities and potential applications of such a setup. We also present Bend Invaders, one of the first arcade games on a curved interactive surface. Our demo intends to encourage the discussion about the future of multi-touch in desk environments.
