Go With The Flow
Go with the Flow is a tangible user interface that allows you to visualize and filter incoming emails. Divided into three categories by tags (work, family, and friends), the emails are represented by colored water drops from 3 tanks and 3 different tubes. You are able to decide the amount of emails from the different categories you want to receive in your inbox. The concept, even if meant to be a statement object, helps people working from home better divide their personal and work lives. This creates a liquid membrane instead of a solid barrier.
Project created by Dean McNamee and Filippo Cuttica at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.
