Seamlessly Transferring Files Between Devices With A Fingertip [Video]

Seamlessly Transferring Files Between Devices With A Fingertip [Video]

Ishac Bertran imagines a more intuitive interaction between spatially aware computers, phones and tablets.

Emma Hutchings

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, …), 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. That’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:
