Last month in our post Physical-Digital Interaction Evolves we commented on how device inputs are moving towards more than just touch, and have the potential to incorporate interesting interactions between physical objects and digital screens. The designers at DS-Labs have developed a proof-of-concept that gives a glimpse of what these interactions might look like, using a physical knob to interact with a Google Earth interface. We expect to see this idea manifest itself in the form of physical counters or game pieces that interact on iPad screens, adding a layer of richness to the mechanics of digital games.
