Portals (and friends) – YouTube.

Great art project and what an amazing programming job! There is also an instructable, full of great inspiring ideas for this sort of interactive projects. I can’t believe how many applications and software were used, it is really mind-blowing.

A while ago, one of my professors (Berry Eggen) did a lecture on Harry Potter. It sounds strange, but think of all the magical artifacts in that story, that are not really explained except through how the users use them. You don’t need to know how they work, to be able to experience and enjoy them. In fact, Berry posed the statement that by accepting future technology like it is magic, we are better able to focus on designing what really matters: how we will interact with it.

If that sounds far out there: look at this project. Isn’t it easy to believe that it works through some kind of magical force? It is such an inspiring way to envision the future, unencumbered by practical restraints.

Technological poetry. Enjoy!
