Yen Wen was sick today so she couldn’t come =(.  During the meeting with Professor Anind, we talked about potential problems that we might encounter if we proceed with the multi-touch sphere that uses a camera for finger tracking.  One of the biggest potential problem is getting IR rays to refract internally in a semi-spherical plastic surface.   It is very possible that the rays will penetrate the surface.  So we beside that it would be worthwhile to do a little experiment.  So this week we are going to try to get some IR LED and some sort of transparent plastic dome-shaped object and examine how much internal refraction we can get.  At the same time we would continue to investigate our previous design and hopefully it would somehow work out?  We somehow need  to find something useable that is semi-sphere, transparent that we can use for the experiment.
