Daniel Leithinger has joined Interaction Group at DRP until the end of summer.
Daniel has just started his Ph.D. at MIT Media Lab in Tangible Media group. I quite liked his Master graduation project Relief which falls into the same broad category of deformable interactive surfaces as Lumen that I built few years ago when I was at Sony.
Relief takes a rather unique approach to designing and interacting with such surfaces and the results look quite good. The project was demonstrated at ARS Electronica this year.
