A growing number of children’s advocates and political leaders are worried that our culture’s disconnection from nature is harming kids. Concerns about the long-term consequences on children’s physical and emotional well-being have spawned a national movement to “leave no child inside.” QUEST explores why we need nature, and efforts to encourage children to play outdoors.
Buried deep beneath the Antarctic ice lies Lake Whillans. Despite being one of the most inhospitable places on Earth, Lake Whillans was nevertheless thought to contain life. In early 2014 a team of scientists trekked across the ice, tasked with drilling 800 metres down to the lake and looking for life. Reporter Douglas Fox went with them, and he tells us about his experiences. Read Douglas’ feature: http://www.nature.com/news/lakes-under-the-ice-antarctica-s-secret-garden-1.15729 Read the scientists’ research paper: http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature13667
This video shows handheld projector systems have the potential to enable users to dynamically augment environments with digital graphics. In this research project we explore new parts of the design space for interacting using handheld projection in indoor spaces, in particular those that are ‘aware’ of the environment in which they are used.

Immersive Interactive Environments: the illusion of existing within another space Spatial audiovisual interaction Roberto Vitalini / www.bashiba.com Paolo Solcia / www.paolosolcia.com/plisito/INDEX.html The design of interactive environments concerns a world apart: it means designing a world in itself, cutting it off the real world and establishing new modalities of interaction within it. It is moreover a way to challenge the perceptions of users and to encourage them to rediscover themselves and their actions. This workshop will focus on the design of interactive environments where modalities of natural interactions contribute to immersive experiences generated by real time digital videos manipulation. Goals The [More]
