Tangible Video Browser

Another project by the MIT Tangible Media group, the Tangible Video Browser:

The Tangible Video Browser provides a tactile and efficient interface for viewing digital videos. Tokens act as both containers for a set of videos and controllers for selecting a video and navigating within the video. Placing a token on the interface enables access to the set of videos and depressing, releasing, and rotating the token controls the navigation.

Why do I blog this? last year I did some research for a company about remote controller. Clickers indeed sucks and suffers from tremendous usability problems. Embedding the interaction in a tangible controller would be a nice solution.
