The Future of Play

20 Oct

Very enjoyable and inspiring keynote by David Merrill about the New Era of Physical/Digital Play at nordiCHI.

He talked about some implications of computer technology changes for HCI, fast UI is a “Must-Have” (making digital tools faster and as responsive as the real-world tools), important “undo” feature, new gesture language, extending the physicality, design for social interaction etc.

David Merrill has been working on Siftable, tiny computer blocks that can interact with each other. Siftable has been around for one and half a year already, but it’s still quite fun to watch it again, especially after his talk.

Embodied media provides not only many new UI design possibilities but also new ways of learning and playing.
