In this paper, we present 'QUICKIES', an attempt to bring one of the most useful inventions of the 20th century into the digital age: the ubiquitous sticky notes. 'QUICKIES' enriches the experience of using sticky notes by linking hand-written sticky notes to the mobile phones, digital calendars, task-lists, e-mail and instant messaging clients. The project explores how the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Natural Language Processing (NLP), RFID, and ink recognition technologies can make it possible to augment physical sticky notes that can be searched, located, can send reminders and messages, and more broadly, can act as an I/O interface to the digital information world.
