Tangible Tags / Tangible Interface // Interaction-/ Productdesign

Tangible Tags
Tangible Tags

The interaction when storing and recalling data such as photos, videos or texts is limited to mouse, screen and a hierarchical folder structure. Often it is difficult to find what you are looking for or to associate data. Tangible Tags includes three interfaces for storing and recalling data. The more information is linked to other information, the better our memory can remember it. Tangible Tags uses the sensorimotor and cognitive abilities of humans to link and recall data with their own bodies, artificial architecture or objects. Tangible tags link human and artificial memory and bridge the gap between the digital and analog worlds.
