Expressive Interactive Interfaces

Monday, March 16
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon B
500 E 4th St

CMU presents the merging of technology and arts innovation through the adoption of integrated intelligence: seamless interfaces with human and AI. Sharing research from The Shape of Touch, Gannon will illustrate 3D printed wearables using gesture and touch to create digital designs that can be instantly printed and worn on the body used by experts and non-experts alike. In Soft-Matter Electronics, Majidi discusses machines and robots made out of materials as soft and lightweight as natural tissue. Highlighting soft-matter technologies, he will show how quickly and inexpensively they can be produced with rapid prototyping. In Lumiverse, Shimizu introduces a platform for creating interactive and reactive lighting experiences. In Morphaux, Bard explores synthetic digital/physical workflows including decorative plastering through live motion capture of a drawing implement, info rich visualization projected in fabrication, and custom robotic tooling to generate free-form running molds.
