A fascinating article summarizing several of the findings presented at the recent International Conference on Tangible, Embedded, and Embodied Interaction.

The Future Of Tangible Interfaces >>

Researchers are compiling data on what we as humans prefer when it comes to human-computer interaction, including such characteristics as:
– shape
– texture
– sound
– vibration/feel
– light
– color
– temperature

The results are more broad reaching than pure HCI, instead looking at interaction that crosses all boundaries of product design, furniture, environment, etc. Very much worth a read.
