Tangible bits: towards seamless interfaces between people, bits and atoms
TLDR
This paper presents our vision of Human Computer Interaction (HCI): "Tangible Bits." Tangible Bits allows users to "grasp & manipulate" bits in the center of users' attention by coupling the bits with everyday physical objects and architectural surfaces. Expand

The metaDESK: models and prototypes for tangible user interfaces
TLDR
MetaDESK is a user interface platform demonstrating new interaction techniques we call "tangible user inter- faces." We explore the physical instantiation of interface elements from the graphical user interface paradigm, giving physical form to windows, icons, handles, menus, and controls. Expand

mediaBlocks: physical containers, transports, and controls for online media
TLDR
We present a tangible user interface based upon mediaBlocks: small, electronically tagged wooden blocks that serve as physical icons for the containment, transport, and manipulation of online media. Expand
