David Merrill and Jeevan Kalanithi have capitalized on the dexterity of the human hand through interactive siftables–new ways to effortlessly sift and sort.

Siftables are independent, compact devices with sensing, graphical display, and wireless communication capabilities. They can be physically manipulated as a group to interact with digital information and media. With this flexible technology, one day Siftables could be used to implement any number of gestural interaction languages and human-computer interaction applications.

We like this project as it touches upon higher level goals, rather than just the objects themselves.   Siftables has the potential to go well beyond their immediate use or appearance. They are not only talking to us, but also initiating our imaginations.
