RoMo: avoiding conflicts between the physical and digital model in tabletop interfaces with robotic tangibles

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


In TUIs, physical/digital conflicts can occur when the digital model does not match the model implied by the spatial lay- out of tangibles. We show how tangible tabletop interfaces (TTI) can be modified to allow robot movement of tangi- bles, thereby avoiding conflicts. We present RoMo, an open source Java library that allow existing TTI applications to perform robot movement, and demonstrate its functionality with three applications.
