All in the Gesture


Although they may seem intuitive now, just over 5 years ago we didn’t use the gestures of pinching, tapping, clicking, scrolling, and swiping very much in our daily lives. These movements are now common, but we don’t use them to interact with anything in our life but screens. Lithuanian designer Gabriele Meldaikyte created a series of objects that help us explore these motions outside of screens. Her simple, interactive machines created from plastic and wood encourage the gestures with real objects, resulting in simple-yet-physical experiences.
