AquaTop Display is a projection system that uses white water as a screen surface. By using a depth camera to detect fingers on and over the water surface, the system allows users to interact with projected images by gestures such as protruding fingers out from under the water surface and scooping up the water with both hands. When users "float" on the water surface, they can fuse their bodies with the displayed objects for further augmented interaction by "becoming one" with the screen. These types of interactions are not possible with current impenetrable, rigid-body, flat surfaces.
