Realities: Virtual, Haptic, and Augmented
Sunday, 8 August
1:45 - 3:30 pm

Meet the real-world interfaces that control virtual, haptic, and augmented realities. Ready for a swim? Watch out for the Invisible Train!

Art and Technology: See It, Feel It, Wear It, Then Have a Seat
Monday, 9 August
8:30 - 10:15 am

Settle back in a rocking chair and experience art and technology that tickles the senses. Should misfit toys be allowed in public spaces? Are sound displays fashionable? What do you think?

Displays: In the Mind's Eye
Monday, 9 August
10:30 am - 12:15 pm

Light reflecting off nanotechnology chips can play tricks on your mind's eye. Is it real or just a snared illumination? It's edgy stuff, but thousands of lenslets still want to know!

Displays: Dynamic, Collaborative, Natural Vision Color
Tuesday, 10 August
8:30 - 10:15 am

Displays are the ever-present, essential link between media and the message. And they just keep getting better with natural vision color, true-3D live video, and multi-directional capabilities for a mean game of four-handed video poker.

Soft Touches: Sensors and Haptic Displays
Tuesday, 10 August
10:30 am - 12:15 pm

What you touch is what you see! This is a very "touching" session, where prosthetic sensors create tactile sensations for robotic hands, a soft touch molds 3D images, and a pin-rod matrix provides inspiration.

Interactive Displays: Touched and Hand-Held
Wednesday, 11 August
8:30 am - 10:15 am

Ready for some fun? In this session, colorful faucets sing do-re-me as we scoop up playful sound flakes from a pool of water. Infrared shadow sensing lets us build a Calder-like mobile. And hand-held projectors allow mouse-like interaction. Care for a projected game of "Hare and Hounds?"

Immersive Art: On Our Walls and Floors
Wednesday, 11 August
10:30 am - 12:15 pm

These interactive displays alter the ways we perceive our bodies, as our digital selves become the art. Come join in the homage to particle dreams. It could result in a healing experience or some flocking behavior!

Art and Technology: Persistent Visions
Wednesday, 11 August
1:45 pm - 3:30 pm

What do a video time-slicing clock, an artistic autonomous agent that serves up video commentary, and a Zen-based experience have in common? Be persistent, come find out!
