In this paper, we present a novel approach to create devices with tangible user interfaces by physical com-position. While the separation of the user interface from the application logic has a long tradition in software engineering, for products with tangible user interfaces there is no equivalent approach that realizes a true separation and flexible combination of interface components, underlying technology, and software parts. We propose a novel concept that is based on an inner Core for the… CONTINUE READING
