Abstract: This paper presents a comparative study between tangible user interfaces (TUIs) and tactile user interfaces (TacUIs) in handheld AR, with a contribution to the state of the art in HCI oriented to children. While TUIs work with the manipulation of physical objects, TacUIs work with virtual representations of them. In our evaluations to compare these two interactions with primary school children, we found that the TacUI was the fastest for completing the task, what makes it better suited for educational purposes. The TacUI was found easier to use by the children, although the TUI was found more solid and less slippery. Our conclusions should be of interest not only to educational researchers, but also to the general HCI community working on tangible and tactile interfaces.
