We propose Tangible Media Control System (TMCS), which allows users to manipulate media contents with physical objects in an intuitive way. Currently, most people access digital media contents by exploiting GUI. However, it provides limited manipulations of the media contents. The proposed system, instead of mouse and keyboard, adopts two types of tangible objects, i.e. RFID-enabled object and tracker-embedded object. The TMCS enables users to easily access and control digital media contents with the tangible objects. In addition, it supports an interactive media controller which can be used to synthesize media contents and generate new media contents according to users’ taste. It also offers personalized contents, which is suitable for users’ preferences, by exploiting context such as a user’s profile and situational information. Accordingly, the TMCS demonstrates that a tangible interface with context can provide more effective interface to fulfill users’ satisfaction. Therefore, the proposed system can be applied to various interactive applications such as multimedia education, entertainment and multimedia editor.
