Week 4 – Current Issues in ID (CMT 4210)

What is Tangible Interaction? …. it is an interaction with digital objects through physical, tangible means?

Some example papers were presented and discussed:

http://web.media.mit.edu/~cati/papers/playpals_CHI06.pdf
http://web.media.mit.edu/~cati/publications/Jabberstamp_IDC07.pdf

Further reading was required to gain deeper insights into this framework and I found a considerable number of web sites which promoted and discussed relevent issues, these included:

http://www.ehornecker.de/TangiblesFramework.html 
http://www.cfpc.dk/resAreas/tanUsIn/tanUsIn_summary.htm  
http://tangible.media.mit.edu/projects/

I should also mention Ubiquitos computing which was covered in Week 3 and a paper called Moving on from Weiser’s Vision of Calm Computing which contrasted with MIT’s project Oxygen I think? Comments would be welcome.
