Tangible Acoustic Interfaces (aka TAI-CHI) ” aims to develop acoustics-based remote sensing technologies which enable virtually any physical objects to be transformed into tangible interfaces, allowing the user to communicate freely with a computer without directly contacting with the mechanical or electrical devices.” Video demonstration after the jump.

The ultimate goal is to design tangible acoustic interfaces (TAI) and an open multimodal platform that employ physical objects and space as media to bridge the gap between the virtual and physical worlds and to make information accessible through large size touchable objects as well as through ambient media
