Abstract

Tangible User Interfaces allow users to manipulate digital information while taking advantage of their skills in using physical objects. This may be especially advantageous for older users with a lack of experience in technology use. This paper presents the implementation of TorBook, a tangible user interface in book format that detects the page that is open. We conducted an evaluation with 20 older adults to evaluate the functionality of TorBook. We find that participants feel comfortable with a tangible interface that uses a book metaphor, but that manipulation must be improved to become as similar as possible in its use as a regular book.
