UltraTangibles

Tangible objects placed on interactive surfaces allow users to employ a physical object to manipulate digital content. However, creating the reverse effect—having digital content manipulate a tangible object placed on the surface—is a more challenging task. This project uses ultrasound-based air pressure waves to move multiple tangible objects, independently, around an interactive surface.
