The Media Lab India Initiative started as a student effort to encourage exchange of ideas about technology, design thinking, and entrepreneurship between MIT and universities in India. This initiative later became an annual event with hundreds of applicants. For the second annual Media Lab India Workshop I traveled to New Delhi to lead the Sensor Mediated Environments Track. Together with Nan-Wei Gong we worked closely with local students and teachers to develop new strategies in creating intuitive, customizable interfaces for human-computer interaction. We enjoyed the fun of prototyping and going through the creative process with our participants. Click here for more information about the workshop.
The following video captures my more general impression of India during our adventure.
