Abstract

In recent years, tangible user interface (TUI) has been paid attention on as a next generation user interface. In most TUI researches, solid body is mainly used as manipulators to assist interaction and they do not focus on “liquid”. So, I focused on liquid as real world object, and I proposed the interaction using liquid in TUI and confirmed advantages of the interaction. As the result, there are some advantages in the adjustment of a sensuous amount comparing solid TUI.
