Tangible bots: interaction with active tangibles in tabletop interfaces

  title={Tangible bots: interaction with active tangibles in tabletop interfaces},
  author={Esben Warming Pedersen and Kasper Hornb{\ae}k},
We present interaction techniques for tangible tabletop interfaces that use active, motorized tangibles, what we call Tangible Bots. Tangible Bots can reflect changes in the digital model and assist users by haptic feedback, by correcting errors, by multi-touch control, and by allowing efficient interaction with multiple tangibles. A first study shows that Tangible Bots are usable for fine-grained manipulation (e.g., rotating tangibles to a particular orientation); for coarse movements… CONTINUE READING
