Talk at Carnegie Mellon August 11, 2006Posted by reto wettach in physical interaction design.
Today I gave a talk at the CyLab at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh/USA. The topic of my talk was “Physical Interaction Design”. I was invited by Prof. Yang Cai, who is heading the Ambient Intelligence Lab within this department.
I am impressed by CMU, especially as the boarders of faculties seem to be quite open. My friend and host, Yang, for example was also teaching a art class. I also met Suguru Ishizaki, who is a typographie professor, now teaching full time in the English Department: as communication is more than words, they wanted to have a designer in this department. Furthermore I visited the Human Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), which has staff from all kind of faculties.
A podcast of my talk is available here.
