(1) Screen: Diffuser - > ”multitouch" screen. Can handle various inputs and perceive objects by their shapes or coded "domino" labels. (2) Infrared: The ”machine vision" is gone for the screen. When an article touches the tabletop - > the light reflects back and is gotten by infrared cameras. (3) CPU: Uses comparable parts as present desktop PCs - > Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of RAM and a 256MB design card. Remote correspondence - > WiFi and Bluetooth reception apparatuses (future - > RFID). Working framework - > altered form of Microsoft Vista.
