Post-it notes are a popular paper format that serves a multi-tude of purposes in our daily lives, as they provide excellent affordances for quick capturing of informal notes, and loca-tion-sensitive reminding. In this paper, we present Move-it, a system that combines Post-it notes with a technologically enhanced paperclip to demonstrate how a passive piece of paper can be turned into an " active " medium that conveys information through motion. We present two application examples that investigate the applicability of Move-it sticky notes for ambient information awareness. In comparison to existing notification systems, experimental results show that they reduce negative effects of interruptions on emo-tional state and performance, and provide unique affordanc-es by combining advantages of physical and digital systems into a novel active paper interface.
