AbstractIn this paper we describe object design considerations for the reacTable* project, a novel tangible musical instrument, developed at the Audiovisual Institute at the Universiat Pompeu Fabra. The work presented in this paper is the result of a collaboration with the Palpable Machines Group at Media Lab Europe, which focussed on haptic design aspects of the reacTable* instrument. We present a simple haptic encoding scheme for the mapping of abstract sound synthesis objects onto tangible proxy objects.
