Spiessl, Wolfgang and Villar, Nicolas and Gellersen, Hans and Schmidt, Albrecht (2007) VoodooFlash: authoring across physical and digital form. In: TEI '07: Proceedings of the 1st international conference on Tangible and embedded interaction. ACM, pp. 97-100.
Design tools that integrate hardware and software components facilitate product design work across aspects of physical form and user interaction, but at the cost of requiring designers to work with other than their accustomed programming tools. In this paper we introduce VoodooFlash, a tool designed to build on the widespread use of Flash while facilitating design work across physical and digital components. VoodooFlash extends the existing practice of authoring interactive applications in terms of arranging components on a virtual stage, and provides a physical stage on which controls can be arranged, linked to software components, and appropriated with other physical design materials.
