This course focuses on cutting edge technologies and tools that empower designers to create new orchestrations in the environments they design. Students will learn about interaction design in spaces through first-hand experience with these systems. Topics to be covered include: tools for creating reactive environments, place as a social network, service design, virtual experiences in physical spaces, and methods for evaluating new technologies. The class will be divided into four sections. First is a quick immersion into choreographing environments; second is an exploration of the inputs and outputs that can exist within our spaces; and the third is a lab-like set of experiments to understand how connecting these technological inputs and outputs in environments can influence the experiences of the inhabitants.
Pre-requisite(s): none. Open to: All University Students.
