2011 IDSA NOLA
Just got back from a great week at the Industrial Design Society of America’s National Conference in New Orleans. This years conference theme was community and keynotes ranged the rebuilding of NOLA’s 9th Ward to how Kickstarter and Quirky’s online communities are redefining conventional business models.
At “Re-Kinect the Impact of Natural User Interface” – Microsoft’s Carl Ledbetter walked us through some amazing new experiences being designed and developed using a hacked Kinect.
What is really amazing is that MS has embraced this hacker community and is now encouraging open source development by releasing an SDK.
