Invited Speaker: Cedric Honnet, May 25

Who: Cedric Honnet (MIT Media Lab)
When: May 25, 11:00AM
Where: ISIR Lab, H20
Title: Sensitive Human-Computer Interactions
Abstract: This talk will be about 3 open source sensing devices and wearable projects:

HIVE Tracker: a tiny, low-cost, and scalable device for sub-millimetric 3D positioning
PolySense: Augmenting Textiles with Electrical Functionality using In-Situ Polymerization
MetaSense: Integrating Sensing Capabilities into Mechanical Metamaterial.
If there is interest, the talk will conclude with an ongoing project, merging the ideas explored above.
Bio: With a background in embedded systems, he has been exploring the connections between physical computing, interactivity and the arts by traveling the world of research labs and hackerspaces. He worked as a firmware engineer and “InterHacktivist” in the Silicon Valley, co-founded a couple of companies developing tangible interfaces, and created interactive systems/installations worldwide. He has worked on eTextile music controllers, augmented immersive systems, interactive art pieces, modular implants, 3D positioning systems and many other Open Source projects, most of them being documented here:
