Table Connect for iPhone… it’s real afterall

Long time, not see… It has been some time and most people might have already forgotten the Table Connect Team I wrote about 8 month ago. Almost anyone thought it was a fake project but now they are back… and they will make their first public appearance at TEDx Vienna on October 22. I am really looking forward to this.

The yet unknown team behind the infamous “Table Connect for iPhone” project has agreed to make its first public appearance at TEDxVienna. It was featured on news outlets such as EngadgetThe SunForbes and many more. After months of hard work behind the scenes, the team will talk about the ups and downs of the project, and announced the first short live demonstration. Find out more here.

If you havent’s seen it, basically it is a table mounted display connected to the iPhone allowing multitouch gestures. The Table Connect Team posted this video in November 2010:

Shortly after they showed off playing Labyrinth 2 for iPhone on the table.

I am really excited to see what they came up with. I will post an update as soon as the TED videos of the event are available.

A concerned colleague provided me with the Financial Times Deutschland today. I have seen this on wired yesterday, but it seems nice anyway. It looked like this:
