An Art, Science and Technology Seminar, co-organised by the Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London and the Centre for Creative Collaborations, with the support of King’s College London Public Engagement

THE VIRTUAL OBJECT AND HAPTIC INTERFACES

When: Wednesday, 28th November 2012, 2PM
Where: Centre for Creative Collaboration (C4CC), 16 Acton Street, London
WC1X 9NG http://www.creativecollaboration.org.uk/where.php

With me, Dr Anna Bentkowska-Kafel, Lecturer in Digital Art History, Department of Digital Humanities, King’s College London and Dr David Prytherch, a glass sculptor and Senior Research Fellow in Haptics and Computer Interfaces, User-lab, Birmingham Institute of Art & Design, Birmingham City University

How real is a virtual object? We will discuss recent developments in haptic computing and its potential for simulating touch experiences of virtual artefacts, particularly museum and heritage objects. The seminar is an opportunity to experience a haptic device first hand in order to enhance a critical understanding of human and machine haptics and the perceptual processes involved.

Followed by drinks.
