A large ultra-fast table-top virtual air-hockey system

This uniquely fast system incorporates a proprietory ultra-fast velocity-sensitive multi-touch touchscreen and a 500+ frames per second high-resolution LED display. The touchscreen is capable of tracking up to four players’ fast sweeping hand movements.

A hand’s velocity and point of contact with the virtual ‘puck’ can therefore be determined. This velocity and position data is factored into the physics of the simulation so that the puck responds in a realistic manner to contact with the players’ hands.

The high frame rate of the screen ensures that the puck image does not flicker even when moving at high speed across the table – giving an ‘analogue’ feel to the game.
