MAS.834 Tangible Interfaces

Class Info

Explores design issues surrounding tangible user interfaces, a new form of human-computer interaction. Tangible user interfaces seek to realize seamless interfaces between humans, digital information, and the physical environment by giving physical form to digital information and computation, making bits directly manipulable with hands and perceptible at the periphery of human awareness. In the design studio environment, students explore experimental tangible interface designs, theories, applications, and underlying technologies, using concept sketches, posters, physical mockups, and working prototypes.

This class has no prerequisites.

MAS.834 will be offered this semester (Fall 2019). It is instructed by H. Ishii.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays in E15-341.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
