Spacebrew: A Toolkit for An Open Internet of Things
Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 7:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Designers + Geeks features talks from experts on design, technology, startups, and all manner of geekery. If you want to be the first to hear about new Designers + Geeks events, sign up for the newsletter.
For the past few months James & Josh have been working on Spacebrew: A toolkit for prototyping interactive spaces, built to be used in workshops it enables dynamic re-routing of inputs and outputs within a space. They will discuss how it works and how we have used it on our client projects. And how an open toolkit for the Internet Of Things can allow various disciplines to collaborate on creating a single interactive experience.
James Tichenor and Josh Walton are Co-Chiefs at the Rockwell Group LAB, an interactive design team operating within a larger architecture firm, the Rockwell Group. Through experimenting with interactive experiences and embedded software the LAB connects digital with analog wherever possible. They will discuss how to leverage digital tools to tell more persuasive stories that blend virtual and physical identities.
