Abstract
This research focused on application of low price interactive multimedia on education and communication. This study used an interactive floor to make a different environment apply on special education and assistive technology. Based on the interactive technology and infrared emitter, participants could control the tool via micro switch instead of a pc mouse. They could sit on the floor and immerse an intimate feeling. Universal design and custom-made interface are the important perspective. The research result could offer a different vision on atmosphere that from interactive floor. The design of the interactive content support both the special education and assistive technology students a different vision field. In these cases, the interactive technology depend on universal design, which care about participant's interactive abilities to transfer the technical capabilities into intuition feedbacks.
