The Enchantment of Everyday Things

Presented by Dave Merrill, Co-Founder of Sifteo

Whenever an everyday object gets reinvented by Software, an industry is overturned, another is born, and we gain amazing new capabilities. The desktop computer reinvented the desk, smartphones reinvented telephones, and tablets reinvented books. This talk will examine how Sifteo Cubes reinvent everyday blocks to enrich the lives of kids and families with tactile interactive play experiences, and how recent conditions are nurturing a new wave of hardware startups building uniquely physical interactive products.

Dave Merrill is President and Co-founder of Sifteo. He is an expert in cutting-edge human-computer interaction, producing multiple award-winning interfaces and technologies changing how people play and work with technology. Dave and his work have been featured at TED, MoMA, the Discovery Channel, Popular Science, New York Times, and Wired.
