Interactive Architecture Lab founder Ruairi Glynn chats with CAN about the freshly-launched Design for Performance & Interaction (DfPI) programme at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
Developed at the MIT Media Lab’s Mediated Matter Group, ‘Data-Driven Material Modeling’ refers specifically to the process of the creation of high-resolution, geometrically complex, and materially heterogeneous 3D printed objects at product scale.
New project by Neri Oxman and the team at the Mediated Matter Group / MIT Media Lab explores the possibility of a controlled space in which seasonal honeybees can thrive year-round.
Developed by the team at MIT Media Lab’s Responsive Environments group, SensorTape is a sensor network in a form factor of a tape that allows users to create large sensor networks.
Created by Felix Heibeck, Basheer Tome and Clark Della Silva with supervision from Hiroshi Ishii at the MIT’s Tangible Media Group, uniMorph is an enabling technology for rapid digital fabrication of customized thin-film shape-changing interfaces.
Glassified is a modified ruler with a transparent display to supplement physical strokes made on paper with virtual graphics. The goal of the device is to complement rather than replace a typical ruler and since the display is transparent, both the physical strokes and the virtual graphics are visible in the same plane.
Architect and designer Neri Oxman is assistant professor of media arts and sciences at the MIT Media Lab, where she directs the Mediated Matter research group. Her group explores “how digital design and fabrication technologies mediate between matter and environment to radically transform the design and construction of objects, buildings, and systems”.
