Touching the Future (19:00 – 20:00) – Richard Leggett
In this session, Richard will take a look at computing in 2012. Not too far away at all, but far enough for things to have become a little bit more interesting, especially in the world of Flash and HCI.
There’ll be prototypes, videos and hands on demonstrations all in order to try to get a feeling for the kind of things we will be making and using in the near future.
The session will not be too technical in its nature, but explanations will be given as to how everything is made, with room for questions to get into a little more detail.
Collaboration in Education ( 20:15 – 21:15 ) – Elmer Zinkhann
In this talk Elmer will show us the current results of his research on how digital media may be used to enhance face-to-face communication between pupils as well as exploring ways how devices can interact with eachother. As a part of his post-grad studies in Industrial Design Engineering he will deconstruct the design process through examples and illustrations which led to a product-service solution parts of which are prototyped using Flash.
We will also have some Adobe rock candy and stickers.
