SpringFlow: A Digital Spring-sign
Paper in proceedings, 2002

We present SpringFlow, a digital Spring-sign, which, from February to May, changes its characteristics to indicate how far gone spring is. With the aid of our Spring-sign, you navigate through time just like you would with a calendar. Its construction resembles a hollow ball, while the appearance of it depends on the users interactions. By tilting it, changes in sound, light, heat and cold will be produced. Based upon prior work in ubiquitous computing, SpringFlow incorporates old techniques to create something new. This paper describes the components, interaction, implementation, conceptual approach, but most of all the aesthetics
