Tangible user interfaces have a rich history in HCI research ever since their introduction two decades ago. But what are the practical implications, the commercial potential, and the future of this influential paradigm? This panel starts by looking into the importance of tangible interaction and its current role. It will then draw on the expertise of both the panelists and the audience to speculate about its future and new opportunities for the field. The panelists represent a variety of perspectives from both industry and academia, and includes some of the most well-known innovators in the field. The format builds on the CHI 2006 panel The state of tangible interfaces: projects, studies, and open issues, which shared some of the same organizers.
