Workshop: Interface hacking with Jesse Howard
In the late 1960s, Doug Englebert imagined a personal computer interface in which users would interact with the computer with the skill of a musical virtuoso. Ultimately, only his most straight-forward ideas were adopted: the keyboard and mouse became (and remain) the predominant way we interact with computers.
In this workshop, we will explore new ways of communicating with current-day computers, and prototype novel interface devices. Through 3D-printing, Arduino programming, physical sensors, and by hacking existing objects, we will create functional prototypes that re-imagine everyday actions with the PC.
We have reserved a few spots for non-members. Material costs: €10,- estimate, depending on what you want to use. Please sign up a few days ahead, so Jesse knows what materials to provide.
We are exited to see what will be created in our House! For a glimpse of his previous work, check out his website www.jessehoward.net
