The Tangible Palette
The aim of this project is to implement a Mixed Interactive Technique to support the user's interaction with a 3D hierarchical structure. This structure is made of "nodes" and "edges". Each node is associated to a picture of an animal. Each node may have sub-nodes.
Possible actions that a user may want to apply on this 3D structures are for example:
In order to present these commands to the user, we propose to use a palette,
similar to the one used by a painter: on this physical palette, the different commands
are positioned. Selecting this command relies on pointing a physical selector
on this command, as if the painter points his brush on a given color paint.
