1. Interactive art with wooden mirror

What makes them great?
Interactive art work in a hotel lobby where everyone passes by.(W hotel, Seoul, Korea). Makes people to loose their stress.

What makes them examples of tangible interaction?
By your movement the picture(?) changes. The best thing for using wooden block is that people not only see the difference of the color but can hear and watch the movements immediately.

How do they work?
Uses camera sensors and custom software to make every wooden box to move independently. Spot light on the ceiling helps the movement of the wooden box to look like an image altogether.

2. ACCESS – an interactive art installation by Marie Sester

What makes them great?
Very simple, but effective. This simple interactive spotlight reminds people of the scenes in movies or make them feel like a musical star.

What makes them examples of tangible interaction?
The spotlight follows your position and will monitor your behavior. Samples of the audio played randomly makes people to react even though it is not interactive.

How do they work?
Uses camera sensors and custom software to recognize your position and changes the spotlight to its position. It uses simple technology but effective because people imagines the situation where there are spotlights.
