TANGIBLE INTERACTION – Workshop
The Tangible Interactions workshop aims at developing projects in the domains of physical computing and haptic interfaces by screening, analysing and experimenting software and hardware technology in order to develop a confidence with the palette of tools and platforms that constitute the “basis” for designing interactive solutions.
