Siftables is the latest example of a Tangible User Interface (TUI), an emerging technology that aims to use physical objects as interface for computing needs.  Siftables, however, differ from traditional models with the addition of a sensor network user interface , which gives them a groundbreaking level of coordination and interaction. The inventor, David Merrill, wowed onlookers at the technology, Entertainment, Design (TED).  People started buzzing about this topic after the presentation in February 2009.
