How about manipulating digital information with your hands in a more natural, instinctive way like we do with other tangible things? Devices called Siftables make this possible. As per the creators David Merrill (MIT Media Lab) and Jeevan Kalanithi (Taco Lab), “Siftables are compact electronic devices with motion sensing, graphical display, and wireless communication. One or more Siftables may be physically manipulated to interact with digital information and media.” So, while gestural user interfaces allow you to manipulate digital information on surfaces by using gestures (like SixthSense and g-speak), tangible user interfaces (like Siftables) allow you to manipulate information in your hands with gestures.
