Abstract

In this paper, we will introduce the ROSS framework, an integrated application development toolkit that extends across different tangible platforms such as multi-user interactive tabletop displays, full-body interaction spaces, RFID-tagged objects and smartphones with multiple sensors. We will discuss how the structure of the ROSS framework is designed to accommodate a broad range of tangible platform configurations and illustrate its use on several prototype applications for digital media content interaction within education and entertainment contexts.
