In collaboration with the dizmo team, we developed a novel interface platform. Dizmo is an open interface platform with which users can intuitively order, use and link “digital gizmos” to generate new functions. The very flexible user interface represents a crucial step in the evolution of interface development. Diverse multi-media data structures such as text, images, videos, html files, etc even entire Excel applications can be moved and ordered on a digital surface (the dizmoViewer). These “digital gizmos” can be operated, hidden, added, removed, zoomed and rotated with a touch screen or a mouse. The software runs on Mac, PC and Linux.
