Talk summary Cati Vaucelle, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab will present two recent projects developed for the Media Lab's Tangible Media Group focused on Gesture Object Interfaces.

At the Media Lab, the future is lived, not imagined. In a world where radical technology advances are taken for granted, we design technology for people to create a better future.The Lab comprises rigorous research and graduate degree programs, where traditional disciplines get checked at the door. Future-obsessed product designers, nanotechnologists, data-visualization experts, industry researchers, and pioneers of computer interfaces work side by side to tirelessly invent-and reinvent-how humans experience, and can be aided by, technology.

On May 2nd, come and explore innovative ways to design seamless interfaces between people, digital animation, and physical environments. Discover "tangible bits" which give physical form to digital information and computation. Learn about user interfaces that employ physical objects, surfaces, and spaces as tangible embodiments of digital information exploiting the human senses of touch and kinesthesia and analyze ambient media as reflections of digital activity at the periphery of human awareness.

Will it be webcasted?

(There should be an acronym for that, WIBW or something. The poor-quality digitalization of real-world events, reduced to four letters.)

It sounds fascinating.
