Collaborative Creativity Using Twitter and Microsoft’s Multi-Touch Surface

This is a one-day prototype exploring the possibilities of connecting the ubiquity of Twitter with the single-location Microsoft Surface.

It’s basically collaborative magnetic poetry. Any user can add words to be used by replying to @touchPoetry on Twitter. Users on the Surface drag words around to form poems and encircle them to create an outgoing “tweet” on the touchPoetry twitter account , twitter.com/​touchPoetry.
