Panel:

Discussion / Q&A with Elliot Woods, Mimi Son, Eric Brockmeyer, and Tom Igoe. Facilitated by Phoenix Perry.

Session: Fairy Tale Interaction

Story telling is integral to the development of interactive technologies. Our work has focused on the creation of new interactive sensors, haptic devices, and displays which parallel stories that continuously evolve based on both technological discoveries and business needs. To achieve this flexibility and vision, our interdisciplinary team of artists and scientists bring their unique perspective to each project.
