Beginning in the mid-1990s, I became obsessed [:-)] with a variety of Sensory Information Navigation Systems (SINS)[:-)] >
Of note are:
The Big Picture(sm): Visual Browsing in Web and non-Web Databases
The Magic Touch(sm): Haptic Interaction in Web and non-Web Databases
The Next WAVe(sm): Auditory Browsing in Web and non-Web Databases

Due to other obsessions [:-)], I have only been able to generally follow subsequent SIN-ful [:-)]developments and therefore I am calling on The Wisdom of The Web to re-kindle The (Old) Obsession, by eliciting / soliciting information about any current SINful activities on Any / All platforms for navigating Information Space(s) (documents , media, The Web, etc).
With the significant increases in broadband, software, and interface functionalities there should have been major advances .. but IMHO there have not been the advances one (I) would have expected [:-(]
