More and more new ways of interaction with 21st century technology have been implemented in recent years, with special focus for smartphones and tablet devices. In most cases, the design of these new modalities is related with overcoming difficulties related with sensory, motor or cognitive characteristics of the users, as well as difficulties introduced by the different contexts of interactions where these technology can be used. This smalltalk has the goal of performing a focus group session with the several participants, where will be introduced a new way of interaction using a Tablet device canvas. Different interaction contexts will be explained, so that participants can give their own views regarding realistic use of the modality of interaction introduced. This is an exploratory discussion which will, if successful, result in practical use cases and in a new interaction modality. Therefore, and understanding that every one comes from a different research background, no previous knowledge regarding any type of technology will be needed to participate and all criticism and opinions are welcome.
