This is a video prototype completed as part of a research project conducted by the MIT Mobile Experience Lab in 2010 exploring the connected, social future of television. Combing ethnographies of socially-networked viewers and content with interaction design, the project outlined an innovative, multi-platform TV interface. Looking beyond search and static menus, the team designed an innovative interface that compiles recommendations into a dynamic, personalized palimpsest overlaid with social and critical annotations. The resulting experience is exploratory and highly social, allowing the content to seduce the viewer and become the center of social interactions.
The MIT Mobile Experience Lab formed team ChipChop for the 2012 IOIO Hackthon at the MIT Media Lab. Our hack involved using a cutting board as an interface for recipes on an Android tablet: because you don't want to touch your tablet with messy hands.
This video features Locast H2flOw, a project that uses mobile storytelling to enhance learning and encourage urban exploration and civic engagement. The H2flOw program used the Mobile Experience Lab's Locast platform and introduced this interactive technology as a tool for educational discovery and documentation. Locast H2flOw was deployed in Trentino, Italy in January of 2011. In this deployment, students researched sustainable water use by creating location-based video reportages and documentaries within their community.
