What is this project about?
Our goal was to build a working prototype of a tangible table-based user interface. In contrast to a simulation, this environment facilitates the evaluation and testing of user interactions. That”s why the visual components on the table surface (such as scales) are quite basic and rough. The principles of interaction and graphical behavior had higher priority.
A list of other interactive tables is available at pasta and vinegar, a blog by nicolas nova.
TangibleTable is a project we have done as part of our studies at the HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd in the 7th semester.
