Light as interface

Some prototypes like this are already quite something.
But I would be curious to know if there are other people making new interfaces as impressive as this one.

More here.

Update: this guy here has a sort of compilation of this kind of interfaces.

Nuno,
what a site!, I love the interface
is so positive!!!
for a second I almost believed in the future. thanks

well, that's not an unwise attitude: only for a second...it might be clever to be wary of even such fabulous things...as Virilio suggests, interfaces may imply a "terminal" state for everyone subsumed to their ways of operating...

that is, interaction might actually become much poorer than it would seem...

nuno said...

but then again, we are the product of extensions, we can't escape our most basic condition, much less pretend to be something else...

nuno said...

well, i've already contradicted myself and been obscure enough for today... Carlos, you still want suggestions for the Creativeprocess map1?

Carlos Infantes said...

I think what we need is to find a way to look at the 20th century creative process from a complete different point of view. like this new world maps that are free of geografical relationships.
this will allow us to discover links so far unthinkable and to trace a certain secret knoledge (meme) that should tie the two sides of the spectrum (intuition and technology)
so the idea would be to bring in a super data base of creators, art movements, filosophical concepts, etc... and create a new cartography.
we could call it memegraphy

nuno said...

ok, let's kick start it

maybe we should start a new post for this, so as to group each other's suggestions and ask other people's own ones

Carlos Infantes said...

how about the chat side bar? do you think is possible? then it should be archive by sessions like the previous post list

here is our answer

well, for me at least, the comments already work more or less ok as they are.

but if you prefer a chat side bar, let's go ahead with it, my only limitation being the fact that i will only be available from time to time.

but, still, a new post would help to kick start the thing, also to make the idea clear enough for other people to contribute to the big map.

maybe it would help, at the beginning, to restrict ourselves just to the three major "categories" you mention:
creators, art movements, filosophical concepts;
that way, what would matter most would be people, ideas, and how these have interrelated

nuno said...

well, maybe a fourth "category" - key artworks
