The design space of fabric multitouch surface interaction is explored with emphasis on novel materials and construction techniques aimed towards reliable, repairable pressure sensing surfaces for musical applications.
We introduce the Tangible Video Bubbles, a new video-based drawing space for children to create expressive video art. A Tangible Video Bubble acts both as a container for children's expressions, as well as an instrument with which children can perform with their recorded video by squeezing and stretching the physical bubble. We present our iterative design… (More)
This paper describes the inspiration and implementation of a tactile, tabletop synthesizer/step sequencer. The Tactus is an expandable and inexpensive musical interface for the creation of loop-based music inspired by the Bubblegum Sequencer . An optical camera, coupled with a computer running Max/MSP/Jitter can turn almost any matrix-like object into a… (More)
