Multi-Touch Tables and Interactive Kiosks

I've worked on a wide range of projects that have involved the design, development, and evaluation of multi-touch table and kiosk applications for arts and cultural organisations.

For instance, I have worked on collaborative projects with the Library of Birmingham, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, Ironbridge Gorge, The Hive, and Sampad that involved developing and deploying touch table applications within these organisations. The application developed for The Hive - "Touch History" - was shortlisted for the National Museums and Heritage 2013 Innovation Award.

Many of these projects involved "in-the-wild" research studies exploring how people use interactive applications in public spaces - several of these applications are also still active today, so you should be able to see them if you visit some of the above locations.

I also recently worked with the Cadbury Research Library to design and develop a kiosk application for the Qur'an exhibition that was held at the University of Birmingham (this exhibition was related to the finding of one of the oldest Qur'an manscripts in the world at the University of Birmingham).
