By shaking a box, we can estimate content inside. Relationship between force that is applied to the box and resulting motion of the box is considered to be a clue to the estimation. In this paper, we implement 4 physical models consist of a box and contents, and evaluate users’ discrimination ability between different models and parameter of each models.
