The future has arrived. Surface computing has redefined our familiar notions of a computer, and is the new buzzword among techies all over the world. As countless breakthroughs have been made in technology, we have effectively replaced our old traditional computers with their keyboard and mouse, with a more natural and intuitive way of interaction, using touch and real world objects to create a more hands-on experience.

The Motion Sensing workshop, brought to you by Quark, offers you an opportunity like never before, to work on fascinating new technologies like the Xbox Kinect as well as other motion sensing devices. You also get to make your very own multi-touch pad using the various techniques learnt. So get your fingers ready, and prepare to enter into the next era of human achievement, by celebrating this wonderful new pinnacle of modern technology, that is, Surface Computing.
