From the Classroom: Networked Objects at ITP
Tom Igoe, Assistant Arts Professor, ITP/NYU

Date: Wednesday, March 16
Time: 11:15am - 11:30am
Location: California Ballroom B & C

At NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program, graduate students are introduced to design of the physical device hand-in-hand with application interface design. Networked Objects is a course that asks students to consider network applications not as connections between pieces of software, but as connections between physical objects that generate and react to network messages.

The results over the past three years have been informative and sometimes surprising. Students have explored a range of ideas, some practical applications, and some creative meditations on the possibilities of translating physical action over networks.

This talk describes the methods and tools used in the class, presents a number of projects that have come out of it, and addresses the class' impact on other areas of research at ITP.
