Description:


    Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) separate intangible representations (pixels) and remote controllers (mouse, keyboard). We present an opposite approach, “Tangible User Interfaces” (TUIs), that tightly couples representations and controls to take advantage of multimodal human senses and skills to manipulate physical objects. We showcase the latest examples of TUIs with a special focus on play, improvisation, and creativity.
