All that glisters is not gold

All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
Had you been as wise as bold,
Young in limbs, in judgement old
Your answer had not been inscroll'd
Fare you well, your suit is cold.

Enchanted Objects

There is a mesh of interesting things going on here. The idea is we will interact with objects and in places in new ways to produce new experiences. - Microsoft Surface - Natural Interaction - Human Joysticks - Valli (2007) Natural Interaction Whitepaper

- The Coming Age of Magic Kuniavsky (2007)

Update: Of course now (2016) as opposed to back then (2006) we know that while we do have some magical touch interfaces, which provide a great deal of presence, that presence is people being mesmerized by photos of their drunken friends.
