*Gasp* Interactive paper!

Thanks to Michelle Leslie for sharing this TED talk on Twitter this morning. Kate Stone is a physicist from the UK and she, together with the team at Novalia, have created interactive paper. This is super exciting because it opens up a whole new world of possibilities for educational material, art, advertising and anything else that paper is used for (signs, newspapers, magazines, flyers, books, menus etc – the list is endless).

The Novalia team are running a Kickstarter campaign to help them mass produce a funky drum poster that features their interactive technology. I’ve just pledged my support and I’m crossing my fingers and toes that they reach their target.

This kind of stuff gets me very excited about the future. What do you think about interactive paper?
