Interdisciplinary research group focusing on tangible technology, dynamic surfaces, biomaterials, electronic textiles and soft robotics. They develop prototypes, research fabrication methodologies and create new materials.
Data collection is a daily practice in the 21st century but the stories behind the data are rarely unveiled. Data storytelling helps with interactive tools and narrative methods to show patterns that can help us make decisions.
Utilizing traditional ecological knowledge, state of the art technologies, and human ingenuity and intuition, we explore ways in which industry could do more with less, and serve not only the economy, but also ecologies.
In the Interaction and Immersion Hub we are looking at the design gaps of the Metaverse-like environments and we strive to create such prototypes that can have beneficial effect our mental health and also our daily life.
