Fairy Tale Interaction – Story telling is integral to the development of interactive technologies. Eric's work at Disney Labs has focused on the creation of new interactive sensors, haptic devices, and displays which parallel stories that continuously evolve based on both technological discoveries and business needs. To achieve this flexibility and vision, the interdisciplinary team of artists and scientists bring their unique perspective to each project.
The advancement and proliferation of 3D-scanning technology means we will soon be able to explore a life-size digital replica of the real world, claims ScanLAB co-founder William Trossell.

Rolling this clock by Korean design studio 11+ allows you to keep track of the time in different cities around the world.
The World Clock by 11+ has a cylindrical design and sits on its rounded edge, with the clock face on one of the flat sides.
Twenty-four cities are written around the cylindrical body, two for each number on the dial to correspond with the 24-hour clock.
Cities with a 12-hour time difference are paired, so London sits with Auckland and New York matches with Bangkok.
When the user wants to check the time in a different city, they roll the clock so the preferred time zone is at the 12 o'clock position.
"Let's say someone living in New York wants to know the time in London," said 11+ founder and CEO Keunha Kim. "When it is 5:57pm in New York, you can see that it is 10:57pm in London if you roll the clock so that London appears on top."
A counterweight in the bottom prevents the hands from moving when the clock body and face are rotated, so the user can check the hour hand against its new marker number to tell the time.
Once released, the counterweight rolls the clock back to its original position automatically.
The case can be turned so a new city remains at the top permanently by unclipping a lock beneath the back cover, where a dial to adjust the hands is also located.
"We live in a time where communicating with friends and family from around the world is as easy and as simple as pushing a button," Kim told Dezeen. "We wanted to create a playful design that would reflect this globalisation."
The polycarbonate case comes in orange, grey or blue.
Kimchi and Chips create phantoms of light in the air, crossing millions of calibrated beams with their work . The light installation creates floating graphic objects which animate through space as they do through time.
A fascination with natural light drove the technique of the impressionist painters, they explored new qualities of colour and the trail of time. Kimchi and Chips' study of digital light discusses a new visual mechanic, their installation adding to the visual language of space and light. As the artist's inquiry deepens, brush strokes become descriptive like code, detailing reality and allying light with canvas.
Light Barrier was co-commissioned by FutureEverything and the British Council. It premiered at New Media Night Festival, Nikola-Lenivets 4–6 June 2014.
This system creates truly volumetric projections which can define 3 dimensional forms in space, in contrast to 'hologram' screens and fog screens which create planar images.
