develop a new interaction language — a new BUI (Bodily User Interface) of sorts arises. Assembly, a research project by Emily Carr University student Lorea Sinclaire, explores different bodily gestures to interact with a mobile phone.
Interactions such as buttoning a coat, sends a signal of your location while stroking your hemline will send out a call to a friend. My personal favorite, hugging yourself and swiping your outer arms, signals you need help.
Assembly just skims the possible gestural and bodily interactions a user may use to interface with their mobile devices but it does begin to imagine a world where body language becomes a novel way to communicate with our electronic objects.
