Came across this on the CrapHammer blog:
Some of amazing stuff from the guys at Perceptive Pixel. Reminds me a lot of the BumpTop stuff I saw demoed last year at DemoCamp – they share a lot of similar functions when it comes to photo interactions but I think the BumpTop physics engine was a lot better.
I love their examples here of how they use it to interact with information though. I can imagine it’d be a lot of fun to do mental model exercises in a system like that. Throw up the nodes, then start making links and dragging the around, too fun!
