Designing a Museum Multi-touch Table for Children
Tangible user interfaces allow children to take advantage of their experience in the real world with multimodal human interactions when interacting with digital information. In this paper we describe a model for tangible user interfaces that focuses mainly on the user experience during interaction. This model is related to other models and used to design a multi-touch tabletop application for a museum. We report about our first experiences with this museum application.
