Abstract

We present a system that extends a typical workstation environment with a malleable physical interface for working with digital clips. It allows users to pick digital clips, give each its own dedicated key for direct access, and combine keys dynamically on a physical surface in a way that inherently reflects the state of an extended clipboard. The system affords copying and pasting of multiple clips each directly accessible through its own key shortcut. The keys can also be dynamically re-arranged to organize clips, and taken from workstation to another to transport clips, acting simultaneously as token and as copy-paste-interface for a digital object.
