A Collaborage is a collaborative collage of physically represented information
on a surface that is connected with electronic information, such as a physical
In/Out board connected to a people-locator database. The physical surface
(board) contains items that are tracked by camera and computer vision
technology. Events on the board trigger electronic services. This paper
motivates this concept, presents three different applications, describes the
system architecture and component technologies, and discusses several design
