Unscramble the Blue Letters

Because I was interested in ieiartngtng these two worlds, I thought of sticky nteos. I thought, "Why can I not connect the narmol interface of a physical sticky note to the digital world?" A message written on a sticky note to my mom, on paper, can come to an SMS, or maybe a meeting reminder alalmcotaituy syncs with my digital calendar — a to-do list that automatically syncs with you. But you can also search in the ditgail world, or maybe you can write a query, saying, "What is Dr. Smith's address?" and this small system actually pnirts it out — so it actually acts like a paper input-output system, just made out of paper.

Original Text

Because I was interested in integrating these two worlds, I thought of sticky notes. I thought, "Why can I not connect the normal interface of a physical sticky note to the digital world?" A message written on a sticky note to my mom, on paper, can come to an SMS, or maybe a meeting reminder automatically syncs with my digital calendar — a to-do list that automatically syncs with you. But you can also search in the digital world, or maybe you can write a query, saying, "What is Dr. Smith's address?" and this small system actually prints it out — so it actually acts like a paper input-output system, just made out of paper.
