Tabletop computers based on diffuse illumination can track fiducial markers placed on the table's surface. In this paper, we demonstrate how to do the same with objects arranged in a three-dimensional structure without modifying the table. We present lumino, a system of building blocks. In addition to a marker, each block contains a glass fiber bundle. The bundle optically guides the light reflected off markers in the higher levels down to the table surface, where the table's built-in camera… 
Lumino: tangible building blocks based on glass fiber bundles: invited demo
TLDR
Luminos are tangible building blocks that allow users to assemble physical 3D structures on a tabletop computer, and extend the concept of fiducial markers commonly used with tabletop computers to the third dimension.
Lumino: tangible building blocks based on glass fiber bundles
TLDR
Luminos are tangible building blocks that allow users to assemble physical 3D structures on a tabletop computer using the table's built-in camera, including those luminos located on top of other luminos.

TLDR
A mediator is built, the Rabbit, a device that translates the value of an RFID tag into a visual 2D code that can be read by the DIT's built-in camera and defined a design space for mediated tabletop interaction.
T4 - transparent and translucent tangibles on tabletops
TLDR
This paper systematically investigates the promising potential of tangibles entirely made of transparent or translucent materials, and proposes a comprehensive design space for transparent tangibles on tabletops based on a thorough review of existing work.
StackBlock: block-shaped interface for flexible stacking
TLDR
A novel building-block interface called StackBlock that allows users to precisely construct 3D shapes by stacking blocks at arbitrary positions and angles is proposed and could sufficiently perform 3D shape recognition for users' flexible stacking.
Augmented reality, surface style: extending displays through fiber optics
TLDR
A novel use of fiber optics is described to take the light from a planar surface and extend it to display into the third dimension, both vertically and in any direction that the fiber optic is bent.
