UIST 2002 - The Actuated Workbench: Computer-Controlled Actuation in Tabletop Tangible Interfaces

The Actuated Workbench is a device that uses magnetic forces to move objects on a table in two dimesions. It is intended for use with existing tabletop tangible interfaces, providing an additional feedback loop for computer output, helping to reolve inconsistencies that otherwise arise from the computer's inability to move objects on the table. We describe the Actuated Workbench in detail as an enabling technology, and then propose several applications in which this technology could be useful.
