NYU's ITP (Interactive Telecommunication Program) students are once again harnessing interactive technologies to bring you futuristic projects that are both artistic and practical. This Spring Show, like all the ITP shows in the past, continues to push boundaries of interactivity in the real and digital worlds.
What can you expect at this Spring's show? Two among many projects to look out for are The Red Carpet, an installation by Jaewook Shin and Christian Bovine, replicates the experience of walking on a Red Carpet and responds to the amount of skin revealed by the user. More skin results in a greater amount of flashing lights and crowd sounds. A more practical project, Improving Posture and Pressure for Handwriting by Daniel Soltis and Heidi Press, measures handwriting pressure and foot position to help grade school students improve their handwriting posture.
Showcasing a range of interactive sights, sounds and technologies, ITP's Spring Show will run 8-9 May 2007 from 5 to 9 pm. Click here for more info.
