Though i came across this project quite sometime back, but worth mentioning it on my blog. As my interest always tends towards new modes of interaction, this is again something of that sort.
“Siftables aims to enable people to interact with information and media in physical, natural ways that approach interactions with physical objects in our everyday lives. Siftables are independent, compact devices with sensing, graphical display, and wireless communication capabilities. They can be physically manipulated as a group to interact with digital information and media. Siftables can be used to implement any number of gestural interaction languages and HCI applications.”

Siftables is developed by David Merrill & Jeevan Kalanithi.
