In a world with a billion sensors, how will we make sense of it all? Come see project presentations from teams at the top design schools from around the world responding to this challenge at the Design Expo part of the Microsoft Faculty Summit.
The projects are:
- Platform: A collaborative information system for subway stations (Escola Superior De Desenho Industrial, Brazil)
- Tilt-it: A game device that helps kids improve physical imbalance issues (Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), Media Innovation Lab, Israel)
