Interactive MattersPerson in Charge of the Project : Yasuaki Kakehi
In this project we aim to harmonically integrate the physical world (Atoms) and digital world (Bits). By "multiplying" the computationally controlled environment or tools with the various characteristics of substances, such as elasticity, conductivity and magnetism, we provide dynamic transformations or movements to the physical world and realize a new interactions between human and materials.
Scalable Interactive StructuresPerson in Charge of the Project : Yasuaki Kakehi
In this project, we propose novel methods for prototyping room-scale structures. We also introduce an installation “microcosm,” which consists of a dynamic shape- and scale-changing modules.
Design for HabilitationPerson in Charge of the Project : Yasuaki Kakehi
The theme for this project is "(Re)HABILITATE." In addition to supporting the person's actions with digital technology, we aim to "extract and extend" the person's ability. This time, we introduce several new projects including a wearable device for changing our facial expressions and a 2D/3D drawing tool with machines.
