Welcome to tangint
The site now aims to help support dissemination of electronics, firmware, software, physical designs (e.g., mechware), and visual designs supporting the creation of tangible interfaces. Most of this content is provided open-source for non-commercial use, under the Creative Commons license (specifically, CC BY-NC-SA 3.0).
The tangint site initially is composed of several content repositories, and several mailing lists. It is hosted by DreamHost, making a variety of other integrated technologies straightforward. Please contact us (or visit/join hosted discussions) if you have ideas or proposals.
tangint currently hosts two hierarchies of content: tangint/tech and tangint/tangibles. These have been initially populated by efforts by the Tangible Visualization group at LSU CCT + CS, with support from NSF MRI 0521559 and Creative-IT IIS-085065, but we are hoping to grow this base in collaboration with the larger community.
- tech (browse directory): This sub-repository hosts tools and other content supporting the technical creation of tangible interfaces. Subelements include:
tangint currently hosts several mailing lists. These include:
- tangint-discuss. This list is for discussion of the tangint site itself, including its prospective futures.
- tangibles-discuss. This list is for discussion of tangibles, initially including both their design and underlying technology. If traffic grows, these topics may be partitioned to more focused lists.
tangint.org has gone through two major phases of life. From 2004-2007, it served as a communal wiki and moderated digest for the tangible interaction and tangible interfaces community. It was co-edited by Brygg Ullmer, Eva Hornecker, and Albrecht Schmidt, and eventually evolved into the ACM TEI conference. The SnipSnap wiki engine that serviced the site has since been decommissioned; a retrospective archive of the content is under reconstruction.
