Title:

    Tangible user interface for supporting disaster education

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    We introduce an interactive disaster simulation system for disaster education. This system incorporates a tabletop tangible user interface [Ishii and Ullmer 1997] and a digital pen input to provide a wide range of users with a collaborative and easy-to-use learning environment. Users can manipulate the map data to learn more about their towns. Likewise, through natural interaction with the physical tools on the table, users can explore disaster evacuation scenarios based on simulation.
