Abstract
In this paper we introduce tacTiles, a novel wireless modular tactile sensitive surface element attached to a deformable textile, designed as a lay-on for surfaces such as chairs, sofas, floor or other furniture. tacTiles can be used as interface for human-computer interaction or ambient information systems. We give a full account on the hardware and show applications that demonstrate real-time sonification for process monitoring and biofeedback. Finally we sketch ideas for using tacTiles paired with sonification for interaction games.

Description
Interacting with the tacTile on an office chair - the sonification monitors interaction with the tacTiles, stationary pressure patterns lead to an amplitude decay of the pulsed sound streams.

Description
If the user remains unmoved on the tacTiles for a longer time, sounds start to engage the user in a more dynamic working style. A threshold time can be adjusted. For the video, this time is quite short to keep the video small, suitable times are perhaps around several minutes.

Description
As visual means of communicating the unhappyness of the user remaining too rigid while working, a facial expression may offer a reward by smiling on dynamic behaviour, while looking sad otherwise.

Description
This video shows how simple a weighing machine can be realized with tacTiles, by summing the sensor readings for the seating area and mapping accordingly. Although this estimate is quite fuzzy, it may give a rough estimate of who is sitting on the chair.

Description
This video shows how a sequence of weight shifts can be used as a motion password. While the actual code is quite discrete and binary, identification of users via their typical bahavior might be possible in future implementations.

Description
The video shows that weight shifts are accurate enough to be useful for control applications. While painting (as shown here) is not particularly useful, a control of line width or style while using the mouse to paint might be a useful extension of control for specific applications.

Finally this interaction example shows many demos together, demonstrating that applications can easily be combined.
