Another notable name dropped from the Underkoffler talk.
Hiroshi Ishii is the Jerome B. Wiesner Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, at the MIT Media Lab. He joined the MIT Media Lab in October 1995, and founded the Tangible Media Group. He currently directs the Tangible Media Group, and he co-directs the Things That Think (TTT) consortium.
Hiroshi’s research focuses upon the design of seamless interfaces between humans, digital information, and the physical environment. His team seeks to change the “painted bits” of GUIs to “tangible bits” by giving physical form to digital information.
About the Tangible Media Group
The Tangible Media Group, led by Professor Hiroshi Ishii, explores the Tangible Bits and Radical Atoms visions to seamlessly couple the dual worlds of bits and atoms. We are designing human interfaces that employ physical objects, surfaces, and spaces as tangible embodiments of digital information and processes.
