What is the purpose of a tangible interface? Current interfaces treat our sense of touch in a binary or tertiary sense, relying on tapping and rumble affordances to signal pressure. At the Design Lab, we sought to think about ways of working with our senses beyond the flat surfaces of our screens.
Featuring over 150 custom printed buildings, the Tangible Map is a permanent installation located at MIT’s welcome center.
Developed and delivered a hybrid tangible-digital interface for exploring the MIT campus.
