Italian translation:interfaccia sensoriale su tavolo (multimediale) /tavolo (multimediale) con interfaccia sensoriale
Explanation:
Ciao Lucia,

Ho trovato un documento Internet cui si fa riferimento ad un'installazione chiamata "Imagining the City" in cui i visitatori, sfiorando le immagini visualizzate su dei tavoli multimediali, possono vederle proiettate su schermi giganti. Forse è di questo che parla il tuo testo? In questo caso, la "sensory table interface" sarebbe (se capisco bene) "un'interfaccia sensoriale su un tavolo multimediale" oppure, rigirando il tutto, un "tavolo multimediale con interfaccia sensoriale".

Se invece il tuo testo parla d'altro, allora maggiore contesto (se ce l'hai) non guasterebbe! In ambito informatico, infatti, "table" può anche voler dire tavoletta (o tabella, a seconda dei casi) e nulla vieta di interpretare "sensory table interface" anche in altra maniera, a seconda del contesto.

Ti riporto comunque quello che ho trovato su Internet, sperando possa esserti d'aiuto:

Explain how the interactive installation works, both at the level of the **tabletop** and the **overhead** screen.
Streaming images representing the work of architects, painters, filmmakers, photographers, illustrators, writers, and musicians are **projected horizontally and accessed by touching virtual arrows** that are projected onto an electromagnetic **tabletop surface**. The sequence involves an initial stream of associative icons that pause and then evolve into small content previews. Left and right arrows enable preview, ultimate selection, and enlargement of text or image. Sound is played through integral speakers. **Once selected, the image is instantly enlarged and then transferred to the overhead mutating futurescape**. Image and text are wrapped and embedded into the dynamic structural forms. That the process of data selection may be transformed into a graphic manifestation of the conceptual subject matter provides intellectual closure for this piece.
