Screens are all around us and are immensely useful in conveying information – but they can overwhelm us and take up more of our attention than we can afford.

Screens are all around us and are immensely useful in conveying information – but they can overwhelm us and take up more of our attention than we can afford. That’s why MIT Media Lab researcher Udayan Umapathi began work on a calm interface that had a closer connection to the physical elements around us – using water. Together with his colleagues – which include engineers and interaction designers – Umapathi created a project for his graduate thesis work called Programmable Droplets. The idea is to precisely control of water, moving them along tracks, and merging and morphing them. Have… This story continues at The Next Web
