Abstract : In this work-in-progress, we present early comparative experiences with methods for designing tangible user interfaces (TUIs). Groups of designers used different approaches for design in the context of a concrete case study: a TUI for controlling LED lighting within hotel rooms. From the results of the groups and methods, we wish to discuss the first comparison between different approaches. Eventually, our aim is to provide a consensual comparison of benefits and drawbacks of each approach, as such a consensual result could be highly beneficial to designers.
