ATLAS Distinguished Speaker: Hiroshi Ishii
MIT Media Lab Professor Hiroshi Ishii presents his vision-driven design research, “from Tangible Bits towards Radical Atoms,” which aims to seamlessly couple the dual worlds of bits and atoms by giving dynamic physical form to digital information and computation. Ishii’s Tangible Media Group reaches beyond the current mainstream of “painted bits” (pixels), to create richer human experiences that appeal to multimodal human senses and dexterous skills developed through a lifetime of interaction with the physical world. His presentation will feature a variety of interaction design projects in media arts, design and science. Ishii will also elaborate on the concept of “Radical Atoms,” a vision for the future of human-material interaction in which digital information has a physical manifestation, enabling us to interact directly with it.
