This paper presents concepts to extend our understandings of bodily aspects of technology interactions. The aim of the paper is to offer a way of looking at the role our haptic and kinaesthetic senses play in experiencing tangibles. We approach this issue by framing it around how our bodies establish relationships with things. Four themes body-thing dialogue, potential for action, actions in space (consisting of within-reach, out-of-reach) and movement expression are introduced. We discuss the role these themes can play in our thinking about, and exploration for, tangible and non-tangible technology interactions. The idea is that these themes can help us consider, not just how a design or a technology might look, but also how it might feel to use. Copyright 2007 ACM.
