VIDEO: Siftables: Toy blocks that are aware of each other

by David Spark on February 14, 2009

This is a video from the recent TED conference in Monterey. Siftables are these blocks with computer chips, software, a screen, and near field communications. The combination of all allows them to be aware of each other and interact learning math, playing a Scrabble-like game, and connect with a program playing on TV. My description alone can’t do it justice. Watch the video, they’re pretty darn cool.

This news item is for the Spark Minute week of 2/16/09 which can be heard daily on Green 960 and 910 KNEW in San Francisco, CA.
