A challenge for the future is to develop new interfaces for the interaction between man and computer. Meanwhile, numerous solutions exist, however an optimum out of different approaches has to be realised. Aim of the project “Tangible Acous-tic Interfaces for Computer-Human Interaction (TAI-CHI)” is to investigate acoustic source localisation methods. When touching a physical object acoustic waves are generated of which the propagation can be traced back to the source. In this article, an approach based on Acoustic Holography in solid objects is presented by experimental results. Moreover, the possibilities for such interactive interfaces as innovative products are given.
