Design and Design Engineering is about making abstract representations often based on fuzzy notions, ideas or prerequisite requirements with the use of various design tools. This paper introduces an interactive hybrid design tool to assist and support singular design activity or multiple collaborative creative processing and product creation. It enables the designer or design team to work smoothly with tangible artifacts and traditional design tools. It enables them to freely and intuitively manipulate these objects while simultaneously integrating the iterations into the virtual realm. By loosely-fitting the serendipitous objects, sketches, drawings, images and other data-sets of interest into the design creation process this hybrid tool supports the intuitive interaction and stimulates the immersive experience of augmented reality. The benefits of the system are haptic and intuitive physical interaction evoking the experience of augmented immersion during design activity. Furthermore the computational listing and repository of iterative history allows the users to access fallback choice-architecture and make full use of the hybrid environment and design synthesis capabilities.
