Abstract

This paper introduces a tangible user interface for browsing and retrieving images from an image database. The basis for the query to the image database is a color layout sketch, which is used by the underlying query algorithm to find the best matches. The users are provided with colored cubes of various sizes (1.5 to 4 cm) and colors (8 base colors). The users can place and arrange the colored cubes on a small table to create a color layout sketch. Multiple users can use this interface to collaborate in an image query. To evaluate the benefits of the interface, it is compared to a traditional GUI application in which the users use a mouse to create a color layout sketch.
