Seamlessly Integrating Physical Artifacts With Media

I love this little test by Peter Kunci because the meaning of the physical artifact is changed by the projected content. At one moment, it is an empty picture frame. The next it's a tray.

Archive Tray from Parker Kuncl on Vimeo.

This demo suggests another idea as well...why does the interactive surface always have to be interactive? Can't it just be a table or a wall most of the time?

  1. I like this idea for an easy way to organize a lot of content in an application. On surface, we so often see a small tagged object that opens a larger container on the screen, but why can't the object itself be the container?

    I suppose one potential downside is that it could be less intuitive to add and remove things from the 'tray'.
