Perceptive Interactions + Alternative Interfaces
In this session, Craig will explore new approaches to interaction design through his unique concept of "userfacing".
Through sight, sound and motion we can inject perceptive capabilities (and thus a sense of intelligence and life) into our programmed experiences.
By exploring physical interfaces and re-examining time and space we can create exciting interactive possibilities where the user becomes the interface and the environment becomes a fresh, new interactive canvas.
Craig will also share a number of exciting opportunities to extend the Flash experience via Controller boards, RFID and alternative interfaces such as MIDI, Wii, Sensors and MultiTouch systems.
