Hu-Poi explores new ways of interacting with your computer. It subverts our preconceptions of the static electronic screen, and allows human physicality and atmospheric conditions to affect this normally closed digital space.

When a strong wind blows through a window, papers fly away beyond our control. Air is one of the essential elements which always surrounds and affects us. Through this interplay of physical surroundings and digital information, people experience an alternative way of communicating with their computers. People can use Hu-Poi to clear their cluttered desktop or blow icons into new positions.
