Interacting Object

 

 

Designed by: STIAN KORNTVED RUUD

Why we love it: The IO (interacting object) makes tangible the interaction between humans and computers in creative processes. The majority of digital instruments are manufactured in such way that they lose their tactile feeling. The IO is a wooden intermediary that improves the relationship between you and your computer.
