We are organizing a Maker Day for students at Saarland University on October 23. In this one-day event, participants learn the basics of printed electronics, 3D printing, laser-cutting, and Arduino programming. Most of the day will be spent hands-on by creating the interactive objects of your choice. No CP, but free pizza and a lot of fun! Beginners are welcome!
The workshop title is “Praktische Einführung in gedruckte Elektronik für mobile, be-greifbare und ubiquitäre Nutzerschnittstellen”.
It starts at Tuesday September 8 at 9AM. More information on the workshop page.
Our project PrintScreen was selected as “Landmark 2015” (Ausgezeichneter Ort 2015) in the Germany Land of Ideas competition. The award is issued by a joint initiative of German industry and politics to honor innovative, forward-looking projects in a wide range of disciplines. We’ll receive the award on July 4th.
The Embodied Interaction Group is organizing the Inventors Workshop 2015 of the workgroup on Tangible Interaction within the German Informatics Society (GI-Fachgruppe Be-greifbare Interaktion). It will revolve around printed electronics for tangible interaction. We are delighted to announce Wendy Mackay (INRIA and University Paris Sud) as the keynote speaker. More information can be found on the workshop page.
On December 15, Moyuru Yamada from the Human Centric Computing Lab. (Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd.) will visit Saarbrücken HCI. He will give a public talk on “Touch and Gesture-based Interaction for Supporting Workers” at 2:15 pm in room Touring 1 at the DFKI.
CHI 2014 has already been started with the workshops and we are all psyched about the main conference. Many of us will attend CHI and present their work. Feel free to chat with us and grab one of our Saarbrücken HCI booklets.
