Projection on Table

Interactive projection
on your table

Imagine you are sitting around a table. On this table you see a picture that moves, and changes colours. When you touch it, a new element appears in the image. You move the objects in the picture with your hands. You play foosball, boules, checkers, and draw in this magical way. This is realized through the interactive projection. The Motioncube Player displays the interactive surface and games. Experiment freely with the starter pack - Motioncube Player and 3D Fish.

Hardware requirements

for the table projection

To enable the motion or IR pen to interact on the projected surface, take into account:


A video camera that can only see infrared light is required (cannot see visible light emitted by the projector). The side installation of your device is preferable when using interactive pen-controlled apps. Infrared illuminator for the camera shall be switched off when launching the IR pen apps. For motion detection the amount of light needed from the illuminator depends on the distance from the projection surface and the darkness of the room.

Infrared light range

In the case of using IR pen-apps, it is necessary to ensure that all elements work in the same infrared light range - camera and IR pens. It may be necessary to use appropriately selected optical filters that allow a specific band of light to pass through.

Projection surface and lighting conditions

The highest comfort in using an IR pen is achieved when you play on a flat, smooth uniform surface. Additionally, avoid the direct sunlight falling on the projection area as it may interfere with the interaction.


When choosing a projector, consider the projection ratio relative to the mounting height, lamp brightness, and mounting method. The side installation of your device is preferable when using interactive pen-controlled apps. When using only motion-controlled apps, both side mount and top-centre mount work well.
