Incredible Intelligent Blocks

Though they don’t know who they are, every block knows where it is and what to do when arranged with others. Each has an tiny OLED display, a 3-axis accelerometer and touch-sensitivity. And from the rules that govern their interactions rises wonder and madness: solved equations, virtual paint buckets, word scrambles and other illusions.

Siftables are cookie-sized computers with motion sensing, neighbor detection, graphical display, and wireless communication. They act in concert to form a single interface: users physically manipulate them – piling, grouping, sorting – to interact with digital information and media. Siftables provides a new platform on which to implement tangible, visual and mobile applications.
