ndustrial designers have a tangible working style. However, compared to digital data, physical mockups are difficult to copy and share over distance. They require a lot of physical space, and earlier versions are lost once they are modified. In this paper, we introduce Catch-Up 360, a tool designed for sharing physical mockups over distance to gain feedback from remote located designers, and compare current models with earlier versions. Summarizing, our approach provides a simple, intuitive, and tangible UI that supports the use of lightweight, web-based clients by using remote manipulation of the physical objects.
