Tangible Textural Interface (TTI) is a new type of sound system that that embeds a tactile surface. The interactive system allows users to rub their hands and fingers across the fabric to control the music. Unlike conventional materials such as plastic or glass, TTI adds a softer and more personal appeal to an electronic device.
With a few simple gestures, users can adjust the volume, select the equalizer, and skip tracks just by touching the speakers. TTI was created by product designer Eun Hee Jo, who has also created other textured gadgets such as the Fabric Mouse.
