Supporting casual interactions between board games on public tabletop displays and mobile devices

Florian Echtler, Simon Nestler, Andreas Dippon, Gudrun Klinker
2009 Personal and Ubiquitous Computing  
We first explore a method to track mobile phones that are placed on a horizontal interactive surface by examining the shadows which are cast on the surface.  ...  Most of these users can be expected to carry a mobile phone or PDA, which nowadays offers significant computing capabilities of its own.  ...  Any system which is able to capture the outline of a mobile device on the surface should be able to implement this method.  ...
