This chapter describes designing interaction methods for tangible augmented reality (AR) applications. First, we describe the concept of a tangible augmented reality interface and review its various successful applications, focusing on their interaction designs. Next, we classify and consolidate these interaction methods into common tasks and interaction schemes. Finally, we present general design guidelines for interaction methods in tangible AR applications. The authors hope that these guidelines will help developers design interaction methods for tangible AR applications in a more structured and efficient way, and bring tangible AR interfaces closer to our daily lives with further research.
