Public Interactives Research Team will have it’s first meeting of the Spring 2016 semester on Friday, February 5th by taking a field trip to the New York Hall of Science to check out their Connected Worlds exhibit. One of the largest immersive, interactive, and reactive installations of its kind, Connected Worlds is a great place to begin our semester-long exploration into the emergent communications form that is Public Interactives.
This semester, the team will continue to experiment with building their own Public Interactive’s prototypes. Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll have demo/hack sessions utilizing Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and MIT App Inventor. In addition, the team is currently designing an infographic describing the Public Interactives phenomenon, as well as preparing to curate and input content into our Online Gallery of Public Interactives.
New members are always welcome. The team meets Friday’s from 2pm to 4pm in the School of Media Studies Loft at 79 Fifth Ave, 16th floor. For more information contact David Wilson ( david.wilson @ newschool . edu )
