Physical prototyping allows you to see, touch, and test your conceptual ideas. This session will tell the story and demonstrate the TRKBRD (tackboard) project, where physical prototyping allowed a theoretical input device idea to become realized.
ROB NER0-MALMO UNIVERSITY
Rob Nero is currently working on his Master's thesis at the Interaction Design Masters program at Malmo University, in Malmo, Sweden. Before deciding to move to Sweden, he designed enterprise web applications for large and Fortune 500 companies for 10 years. Rob's design projects while attending the Masters program include a music remix website that was used in a national campaign for refugees, a Bluethooth-enabled music distribution box for an inner-city hip-hop club, and multiple physical prototyping projects with the Arduino platform. After graduation in 2010, Rob is seeking employment opportunities in the physical and tangible interface areas. He hopes to continue his work in rapid physical prototyping, electronics, and people interaction in every adventure and future employment.
