A Tangible Sound System

A Tangible Sound System

Touch displays are par for the course, now ubiquitous, perhaps even expected. But the Tangible Textural Interface system by Eunhee Jo offers a listening experience which engages the sense of touch while also providing a physical manifestation of the beats and rhythms being played by the system.

TTI, (standing for Tangible Textural Interface) is a new sound system that embeds a tactile surface. TTI has flexibility that enables people to physically touch and feel the response through the controls and physical morph of the surface. TTI delivers new aesthetics through integrated flexible surfaces as interface material unlike adapting conventional materials for interfaces such as plastic or glass. Unlike existing 2D interfaces, TTI has a curved 3D surface opening up new possibilities in making flexible forms and shapes within the interface.

TTI consists of 3 main functions, backwards and forwards, volume control and equaliser, having a physical feedback and control interface within one surface. As you control the functions, the left surface physically responds to the controls. Tactile surface also responds to the beat of the music.
