The Sifteo Cubes have arrived. Expect me to talk about these non-stop for the next month. Sifteo is my new Pinterest. I'm pretty sure my husband okayed the purchase just to shut me up. Silly, silly man.
I am a geek. We've established that with my raving posts about Pinterest, right? I love technology. I particularly love consumer tech. (No offense to all of my ex-clients who make things most people can barely pronounce.) What I really love is consumer tech that is bigger than it appears. Like Pinterest, which just look like a cool place for us to pin neat stuff, but is really a platform for far more interesting things lurking beneath the surface and has already begun to change ideas about how we interact with design and the web. Now meet Sifteo. You know those teeny, tiny Post-It pads? Sifteo Cubes are computers about that size.
More soon, but remember this: First games. Later, the world.*
*Yes, that is tongue-in-cheek. Sifteo isn't going to take over cloud computing or run government databases. Yet. (See that? More hyperbole.) But the introduction of the form factor will make consumer computing more interesting. Just watch.
