In recent years the technical development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) went on quickly, but the interface with which these devices are dealt with, mostly remained unchanged. The use of traditional in- terfaces like mouse, keyboard or mobile phones turns out to be a great challenge for the elderly. This thesis investigates the possibilities of Tangible User Interfaces (TUI) to make the benefits of new ICTs for elderly users available. The main fo- cus of this thesis lies on the analysis of user interaction with a TUI prototype (TanCu). Finally the results of the investiga- tion are evaluated and presented as design implications for a user-centred development of intuitive technologies with TUIs.
