COSC 29.06 Digital Tangible User Interfaces

As computation becomes ubiquitous, we find interactive digital devices scattered around our homes, as integral parts of our living environments, including smart appliances, interactive architectural elements, toys, and interactive artworks. Digital Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) are an approach to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) where computation is embedded into objects we can interact with. One challenge of the TUIs is how to create a seamless interface between users and digital information so that the user can naturally interact with the daily product and their living environment. This course will focus on the theory, process, and practice of building intelligent objects and spaces. Students will be required to design and implement tangible user interface projects by using physical computing tools (Arduino) and computer languages such as Processing.

Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
