Touch Here to Begin: Paper Interfaces and Legible Circuits
Keywords:Interaction Design, Prototyping, Learning Tools, Learning Environments
An exploration of methods for interfacing paper objects with computers and micro-processors to blend printed and digital media within learning environments. Experimentation with conductive inks has shaped a new area of typographic exploration that seeks to blend the constraints of drawing functional circuits with the creation of new forms of legible letters. Touch a letter to trigger projected textual documents or videos. Trace the words on the page with your fingertip to expand a collection of digital media.
