different ways to touch
ubiquitous comp. – tech. entering the world
tangible UI – embodying computation
... plus mobile ... – when location matters
virtual reality – emulating the world
AR / MR – blending physical and digital worlds
physiological comp. – the body is the interface
product design – physical devices with digital effect
what is physical?
kinds of things
what do you think?
rules of the world
kinds of things
natural
• landscape
• objects: stones, sticks
• plants
• animals
• people
• air, water, and fire
artificial
• built environment
• tools
• mechanical
• electrical
• digital & computational
• language
• information
