Take…mind mapping (conceptual and topical) and Google Earth-style contextually visual discovery—and combine them within an app that employs the tactile, multi-touch interface of a tablet such as the Apple iPad to get a…discovery application structured as a contextual map that permits hyper-focusing on…topics of interest through screen gestures.
Certainly something to explore.
And what happened to Syntact—a clever idea for “band in the hand” tactile music remixing and manipulation?! It may not replace actual musical or technical skills for artists yet it does provide possibilities for creative interaction. Maybe we’ll hear more after their presentation at the NAAS conference in Slovenia today. To be continued.
