This is a test of an interactive mode of access to archives I'm in the process of designing.
By using a multitouch mobile device, a user could "taste" or "sample" a few different researchers' captured inquiries from their time spent researching at an archive.
The device would control output on an alternate screen. Here I am just using a monitor as a display but it could very well be a projected image on a wall or surface, a large flat screen, or even a table-top surface.
This experiment demonstrates how piggybacking on existing technology allows for rapid prototyping of experiences for designers.
