Presentation


Overview

What would our devices, interfaces and the way we interact with them look like if we threw out all our pre-conceived notions about them? Through works ranging from bacteria based wrist watches, alcohol aware ice cubes, body API to elastic shape-changing computer displays among others, Dhairya will examine various paradigms and perspective shifts that will help us think beyond the trends and buzzwords – and into the mindset of a speculative futurist.
