A graphic panel featuring colour images and printed text.
'THE TABLE'
The panel text describes a conceptual product which allows table-tennis players to record the strokes in their game of ping-pong as still images. These images can then be printed and be considered as art works created by the taking part in a game. Different styles of pattern can be selected by the player. The concept or tracking the position in which the ball hits the table is similar to Wimbledon's 'Hawk Eye' system.


A concept for an interactive table-tennis table which allows table-tennis players to record the strokes in their game of ping-pong as still images. Movement of the ball striking the table in a match is recorded and in turn printed in poster form as a memento of the game. Different styles of pattern can be selected by the player to enhance their captured print of the match. The concept or tracking the position in which the ball hits the table is similar to Wimbledon's 'Hawk Eye' system. Jonathan Sandilands has now developed a working prototype of the interactive table-tennis table.
