Tangent »





Short description

Tangent is a multi-touch research platform; a digital medium for testing and developing new intuitive interaction techniques.

In the last twenty years the classic computer interface mouse-keyboard-screen has hardly changed.
But now Tangent offers a direct interface with virtual objects by making it possible to touch and manipulate these objects.

A sensitive surface like this one asks for fundamently different interaction principles than the ones known from traditional interfaces.

In the project phase Tangent was developed and built and a range (set) of interaction principles were designed and implemented.
