Second Story’s Satellite: Experiment using Sifteo and MS Surface
“The typical interactive surface does very little to engage our very fine touch senses. Our fingers reach out and find smooth glass, rather than objects. Finding new ways to integrate tangible interaction into digital experiences has long been a goal of Second Story’s.
While brainstorming ideas for a new collaborative table interactive experience we hit on the idea of using Sifteo cubes in tandem with Microsoft Surface. The Sifteo cubes are both tactile and interactive as well as aware of their position in space: you can shake them, tilt them, rotate them. The Surface is a multitouch table that can “see” what’s touching it.”
