Practice Makes: Humans

Wednesday, July 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free
RSVP / Register

Emerging technologies not only augment our experiences as human beings, but have also begun to redefine our understanding of what it means to be a human. Through the deliberate use of tone, language, and image, we infuse human elements into digital products in order to cross the barriers between technology and user, in order to better understand one another and to better understand ourselves. Join us at “Practice Makes: Humans” to explore projects that leverage emerging technologies and empathetic design, including a self-assessment tool that helps improve runners’ forms by leveraging a phone’s unique capabilities and a robot with human-like characteristics and personality.

Food and drinks will be provided!
