CodeSpace by the Human Interactions in Programming group at Microsoft Research is an interesting concept on how to support developers interacting during meetings. The solution involves small devices, tablets, laptops, large touch interactive displays, and 3D gestural interfaces using two Microsoft Kinect devices. They adapted their Code Canvas and Code Bubbles projects to illustrate their concept. They presented a paper at the ACM Interactive Tabletops and Surfaces (ITS) 2011 conference in Kobe, Japan entitled Code Space: Combining Touch, Devices, and Skeletal Tracking to Support Developer Meetings.
