Luminous Planning Table (LPT) – version 1

The LPT (version 1) combines hardware and software to deliver a collaborative Phygital (Physical + Digital) platform that fosters multi-user collaboration through a multi-player approach. This interactive table allows for augmenting physical models via digital real-time projections (Digital Twin), using data of different natures. A wide range of applications are possible, e.g. collaborative urban design and architectural professional design processes, educational activities, and public participation processes. Different users can interact with each other and with the simulated environment (both physically and digitally); for instance, modifying the urban\landscape layout produces real-time reactions of the environment, e.g. by rotating a scaled building, the projection of the sunlight changes accordingly both on facades and the ground.
