One of the things I´ve learned in university is, to quote if you´re moving on unfamiliar terrain. Some of the things – actually some many of them – done at the Human Media Lab seem to fulfil this premise. So here is what they say about this crazy interaction concept: “Foldable input devices are cardboard “mouse pads” that are tracked through cheap infrared sensors that detect bends and folds. Input is used to manipulate paper-like windows on a screen, allowing origami-style input.” And not only the origami style input looks great, I especially like the simulation and “bending” of virtual paper referenced to that foldable marker. OK, maybe it´s a little bit to early for a productive implementation, right now. But this blog is not only dedicated to show best-practice. That´s why I am very happy that my friends from TrendOne have sent in this nerdy-techie-high-brow-demo.
