In the future, don’t be surprised to hear this sentences like “Pour your data on the table” or “Pour your data into my cup”, because if this Cup PC concept becomes reality, sharing your data can be as easy as pouring water from your cup. The concept of “The Cup” is inspired by people’s common behaviors in everywhere and every moment. Especially, usage of cup is one of the most general and daily behavior. In offices, home, even at shops, we can see and use them. In the future, the usage of computer will be more intuitive and simple than now. People will not need to learn how to use PC and the computer system will have effect on behaviors of user’s everyday conduct, like using a cup.
“The Cup” is innovative PC design in terms of following form and functions of physical and instinctive interface of cup. In other words, the operation of this new PC follows certain behaviors when people use cups. Such as contain, collecting, piling and pouring water into other cups, PC has functions of storing, sharing and organizing information. As reflecting a metaphor of cup into PC, The Cup may be creative but easy to use for majority of users.
