Toward Human-Magic Interaction : Interfacing biological, tangible, and cultural technology


The ubiquitous and pervasive nature of computing fosters intimate relationships between humans and computers as the digital objects being entangled with “non” digital objects:  biological, tangible, and cultural. We present the framework of the human-magical interaction, which defines the emerging interfaces as forms of “Magic” emphasizing the seamless interaction between humans and different technological mediums. To explore the framework of Human-Magic Interaction, we re-imagine the ecology of interactive systems and present three speculative technologies that demonstrate different aspects of the framework.
