Abstract

Tabletop and tangible interfaces are often described in
terms of their support for shared access to digital resources.
However, it is not always the case that collaborators want to
share and help one another. In this paper we detail a videoanalysis
of a series of prototyping sessions with children
who used both cardboard objects and an interactive tabletop
surface. We show how the material qualities of the digital
interface and physical objects affect the kinds of bodily
strategies adopted by children to stop others from accessing
them. We discuss how children fight for and maintain
control of physical versus digital objects in terms of
embodied interaction and what this means when designing
collaborative applications for shareable interfaces.
