Review: Development and Technical Design of Tangible User Interfaces in Wide-Field Areas of Application

Alice Krestanova, Martin Cerny, Martin Augustynek
2021 Sensors  
The sensory technical concept is processed to use wireless technology, sensors, and feedback possibilities in TUI applications.  ...  A tangible user interface or TUI connects physical objects and digital interfaces. It is more interactive and interesting for users than a classic graphic user interface.  ...  Children can use tangible musical symbols to compose a melody, which is then played through the computer's speakers and the corresponding effects are placed on the surface.  ...
