Built around a multi-touch surface, VPlay allows users to manipulate video in real time. Digital objects representing video clips, effects and mixers are displayed on the surface and can be easily arranged to create an ever changing video output. Designed to support the practice of VJing, or live video mixing, the novel user interface opens up new possibilities for collaboration and explores the use of touch interfaces in new environments.
