Submission + - iPad tactile object recognition system (geek.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The guys over at the Volumique blog have a different idea as to how to tackle apps for Apple’s devices. They aren’t just thinking about a digital activity on such devices, they are experimenting with using physical objects through Apple’s multi-touch screens.

Imagine being able to buy the playing pieces for a board game, but then loading up an app on your iPad for the actual board. The pieces would be recognized when placed on the iPad’s screen, it would even recognize which direction they were facing. This may sound like an impossible feat unless you use a much more expensive device like Microsoft Surface, but Bertrand Duplat and Etienne Mineur at Volumique already have it working.
