Siftables – a New Paradigm of Digital Technology Usage
The goal of the project is to let people interact with information and media just as they do with real world objects. By placing their hands and fingers on the objects they can sort and work with the devices.
As computational power goes down and out – that means it continually evolves into smaller, more granular packages used in a wider range of applications – we’ll see computation going into every machine not just those dedicated as personal computers or mobile devices. The siftable concept simply shows what is possible in the next generation of computing in which a processor, memory, and wireless are embedded in the unit to provide additional functionality. In five years, the mobile phone device in your hand will look like the personal computer of today—a big, bulky device.
