Subject: [DISFA] Edible User Interfaces

Dan Maynes-Aminzade proposes "Edible User Interfaces":


[ "
Work in Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) has made great inroads in bridging the 
gap between the physical and digital worlds we inhabit. The TUI offers many 
advantages over the traditional Graphical User Interface (GUI), including 
strong physical and cognitive affordances, support for two-handed interaction, 
and ease of collocated collaboration. However, like other interaction models, 
the TUI suffers the limitation that it is not nearly as mouth-wateringly 
delicious as many of the objects that we interact with on a daily basis

At CHI 2005, I gave a talk in which I proposed the new paradigm of Edible User 
Interfaces (EUI) to address this inadequacy. I introduced two EUI systems, 
BeanCounter and TasteScreen, and described applications of each system.
