Esper Dominoes is a system that allows, blocks that are not physically touching to fall in a sequential manner through wireless communication. In this system each block is capable of deciding which block to knock over next. As a block receives a signal from the preceding block to fall over, it sends a signal for the next block to fall. The order in which the dominoes fall is made easy to set up due to their being joined beforehand.
The purpose of Esper Dominoes is to create a tangible way of manipulating an invisible wireless network. Perhaps then Esper Dominoes can be one step in conveying the importance of the notion that it is only through providing information on a scale comprehensible to humans that increasingly complex technologies will continue to spread.
