tangent – a multitouch surface
Zürcher Hochschule der Künste,
Bereich Interaction Design

«tangent» is an interactive tabletop equipped with a multitouch screen, so that it can be operated by several different users simultaneously. Developed in the course of diploma studies at HGK Zurich, the project has two main areas of emphasis:

  1. Development and construction of an interactive multitouch interface that can be used by a number of users at the same time.
  2. Development and testing of original principles of interaction for this surface.
