IML Dresden active at OUTPUT and Long Night of Sciences Dresden

Engaging demos at the Interactive Media Lab Dresden again aroused a great deal of interest at this year’s OUTPUT and Long Night of Sciences.

OUTPUT 2015 took place on Thursday, July 2nd, celebrating its 10th anniversary. Students of the Faculty of Computer Science presented interesting projects that were created in last semester’s courses. We selected four student projects whose exciting results were presented to faculty members, students and guests visiting the lab. Konstantin Klamka presented his project Elasticcon, an elastic controller for everyday use that controlls the computer using various interaction techniques and features. Lars Beck, Maximilian Gräf and Christoph Plagge explained an interactive map exploration technique in front of the display wall. Continue reading

I4D Kick-Off Meeting

On December 11th 2014 was the Kick-Off meeting of the interdisciplinary I4D project, which was started by IML in October together with the Chair of Engineering Design and CAD (KTC) and the Chair of Distributed Control Engineering (PLT). The goal of the project is to create an integrated information and interaction space for industry 4.0 in Dresden. The Meeting was a whole success in the eyes of every participant, so that the way has been paved to implement prototypes of the planed concepts and to acquire additional research and industry partners during the next two years.

Two Invited Talks in November
