Summer School Grand Finale

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

And another AA Summer School drew to a close on August 5, 2005 with an extravaganza of work and production. Was a great final event and review. Pics will be online soon at the Summer School website - until then, here are a few.

Ambient and Augmented Environments

Saturday, August 6th, 2005

The Hospital Club was the venue for our latest meetup with the Ambient and Augmented Environments Network on Weds 3 Aug. For a writeup of the meeting go to Brett’s site at Resarch (don’t want to duplicate a posting…).

One of the many highlights came when Massimo Banzi showed us his magic box of technological gadgetry.

The groovy £4 clickwheel - a MUCH cheaper and just as effective version of the apple clickwheel.

It was a great meeting of minds and ideas from a fairly wide range of disciplines - which led to understanding why you’ll never hear a ghecko clap (from Julian Vincent @ University of Bath) to learning about new advances in printing a building out of concrete (from Lawrence Friesen at Buro Happold).

In attendance were:
Brett Steele
Tom Barker
Julian Vincent
Stuart Veech
Nick Puckett
Lawrence Friesen
Sally Haworth
Barbara Ghella
Simone Muscolino
Massimo Banzi
