Physical Computing

Physical Computing

With the creation of the MOVE (Motion Tracking Virtual Environment) Lab in 2006, the CMDC Program has specialized in physical computing. The program teaches virtual and augmented reality in its courses and offers classes and workshops in Arduino in its new MakerSpace. CMDC faculty and students have won numerous awards for their innovative work in this area. One of the most recent works is Curlew, a multimedia poem created by Dene Grigar & Greg Philbrook, that responds to user's movements via the Kinect Game System. It was featured at the OLE.01 Festival in Naples, Italy in 2014 and at the ELO 2015 conference and media arts festival in Bergen, Norway in 2015.
