    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperAcademicpeer-review


    This paper presents the development and testing of an original user interface ()UI) based on the sense of touch. A tangible user interface (TUI) project that includes the exploration of haptics, design processes, hybrid design tools and unconventional user interfaces (NUI) that focus essentially on the tangible bits, embodiment, meta-cognitive and user interaction (IxD) on concrete devices designed to explore sensorial feedbacks. We include preliminary user-testing with a heterogenous group of 24 participants and show initial results and findings based on usability, interaction modality and user experience (UX).
