description
TangiCut is a tabletop software which enables users to extract structured tables of information from spatial arrangements of elements in PDF documents

solution
Is based around a multi-touch table and a modified box cutter. The box cutter has an infrared LED on its tip and a push-button which toggles its activation. By using this tangible tool users can directly make cuts to indicate the form of the tables, thus reconstructing layout information in the document.
