David Merill on Siftables, the toy blocks that think

David Merill talks about Siftables which he created along with Jeevan Kalanithi at the MIT Media Lab.

As is mentioned at Jeevan and Merill’s Taco Lab

Siftables are independent, compact devices with sensing, graphical display, and wireless communication. They can be physically manipulated as a group to interact with digital information and media. Siftables provides a new platform and OS on which to implement tangible, visual and mobile applications.

Side Note:
Not that this is related to the topic, but just because it struck me so much, you should have a look at the Tiny Icon Factory, made by another member of Taco Lab called Brent. 210300 icons down and counting. View the icons and add to the collection.
