Shiny Happy Table (superficie sensibile al peso con triangolazione e feedback luminoso)
It's a modified IKEA table with a sensitive glass surface that can sense the weight of an object and give a feedback using RGB LED under the glass, right on the spot where an object (or a hand) is placed. It uses a triangulation algorithm that read data from three load cells on which the glass surface is placed. All is controlled by an Arduino and it's opensource.
