Abstract
Over the last decade, interest and excitement surrounding interactive surfaces and multi-touch tabletops has increased substantially. Although interactive surfaces have many unique and compelling qualities, the interactions they support are by their very nature bound to the display surface. This thesis presents a system that not only enables users to interact on the tabletop surface, but also make use of the space above it and provide useful feedback. An educational game for pre-school children was developed using this system and is presented in this thesis. It aims to benefit children, not only for fun, but also from an educational aspect and helps children with their motor skills and cognitive development. Experiments were conducted to examine the benefits and potential issues of this tangible tabletop educational game.
