Abstract: 'User Interfaces' is a key area in Human Computer Interaction. The interaction methods facilitated by the conventional user interfaces have several shortcomings. This research work implements unconventional human computer interactions using some of the selected magnetic materials and field properties. Firstly, the Liquid Interfaces is a novel way to provide rich interactive metaphors and objects, in particular the touchless input, three-dimensional Ferrofluid buttons, like-polarity haptics. Secondly, the Haptic Mouse is the first pointing interface to couple the near-surface sensing and the haptic-actuation. It brings haptic sensations to 3D spaces near to the surface. Thirdly, the Pulse can create or reproduce the feelings and sensations on the skin of the fingertip such as numbness, stiffness, and parasthesia.
