Interactive Table Lets Tourists Dig For Ancient Artifacts

Canaveral National Seashore, Seminole Rest is a landmark of deep historical significance.  Fifty-foot hills created from discarded clam shells more than 2500 years ago mark the location where ancient Native Americans held their annual feast after a grueling annual pilgrimage to the coast.

The National Park Service was looking for an innovative way to entertain visitors and educate them about the site, while at the same time preserving images of ancient artifacts, some of which were so old they were almost unrecognizable.

Thanks to space and environment designers Optika Scenicworks, Inc. ( and GestureTek, the National Park Service found the ideal interactive technology solution to meet their needs.

Optika designed a 60” x 80” interactive projection surface set on an 18” raised platform, outfitted with GestureTek’s TableFX video gesture control technology. Visitors are invited to embark upon a digital archeological expedition, where they can uncover ancient relics (like arrowheads) along with modern items (like keys).  By waving their hands over the table, amateur archeologist can dig through several layers of computer-generated ground cover, including grass, soil and shells.  As users dig deeper, they find increasingly older and more valuable items. Educational videos can also be activated using nothing but waving and pointing gestures, with no button presses or other touch-based user interface required.

“The Wii generation almost always expects interaction with a display, along with an audio visual element,” says Jason Kraning, Project Manager at Optika.  “Gesture control adds a modern twist to sightseeing, and makes history even more cool for kids.”
