Siftables: Building Blocks Meet the Digital Age

Woah. This is like Waldorf goes high tech. And I want it!

This 7 minute video presenting Siftables is incredibly amazing and absorbing. It's digital technology at a whole 'nuther level.

Check it out, and hold on to your hat!

From their website:

"What are Siftables?

"Siftables are cookie-sized computers with motion sensing, neighbor detection, graphical display, and wireless communication. They act in concert to form a single interface: users physically manipulate them - piling, grouping, sorting - to interact with digital information and media. Siftables provides a new platform on which to implement tangible, visual and mobile applications.

"Who created Siftables?

"Siftables was created by David Merrill and Jeevan Kalanithi at the MIT Media Lab."

Welcome to the future, folks!
