In 2007 a selected group of students from my school were given the opportunity to participate in the Microsoft Research Design Expo. As a result, my group presented the project Placematch!, an educational surface computing concept that preceded the release of tablet computing technologies to larger audiences such as the IPhone and IPad.

Placematch! is a system where the main component is an interactive screen/placemat for children to use during mealtime. Through interaction, Placematch! motivates children to incorporate healthy eating habits in a fun and inviting way, bringing mom and child closer on mealtime.
