A SIMPLE HACK, A POWERFUL PUBLIC PARTICIPATION PLATFORM
Using Wii™ technology the weTable transforms an ordinary tabletop into an interactive computer interface. This affordable public participation tool allows teams to collaboratively explore and use computer-based data and programs in a workshop setting. The weTable enhances what people use daily–tables and pens–while the supporting technology works in the background. This allows participants to work with what matters most in a meeting: data, maps, and fellow participants. The weTable is ideal where workshop participants use data and maps to identify and develop planning priorities and strategies.
