Seamlessly Transferring Files Between Devices With A Fingertip [Video]
Ishac Bertran imagines a more intuitive interaction between spatially aware computers, phones and tablets.
Designer Ishac Bertran has come up with an elegant idea for spatially aware devices with a user interface that allows media to be transferred seamlessly from one device to another. A user would simply hold up their mobile device to their computer, creating a visual link that appears as a circle across both screens to show they’re connected, and then transfer content by dragging and dropping it.
Despite how virtually connected our devices are (iCloud, Dropbox, â€¦), they still lack a tangible connection. A (representation of a) physical connection of those devices would facilitate a more intuitive interaction built on traditional mental models from the physical world. Thatâ€™s one of the main reasons why kids interact with iPad so naturally, because it uses interfaces based on natural, tangible interactions.
Take a look at the video below that explores new ways of interacting with media across multiple devices:
