MIT Media Lab presenting at Strategy Institute event in LV Monday

June 7, 2010 by Dave Haynes

Yes, I am alive.

I have been in Las Vegas since late Tuesday for meetings and then, come the morning, the Strategy Institute conference (and then InfoComm).

I rented a car for the first time here (since I stuck around through the weekend) and had the bright idea of going hiking in 107F heat. Let’s just say there was more picture-snapping than hiking. For those who go to Vegas all the time, grab some wheels and go just west of the city to see the Red Rock Canyon. Amazing scenery.

Anyway, enough R&R and back to work. I’m looking forward to a few of the sessions, particularly this one tomorrow:

Case study: Interactive Innovation

Next Generation Visitor Signage Systems: Innovative Interactive Touch Screens You Can Incorporate in the Next 2-3 Years

This session will present the results from one of the latest innovative projects at the MIT Media Lab, “a place where the future is lived, not imagined.” Be one of the first to see what new concepts in design, communication systems and collaborative research are being cooked up… that you can incorporate in the near future.

The speaker is Chaki Ng, a researcher at the MIT Media Lab (pictured above).

I dive into the lab’s website regularly, and as you might expect, these guys really push the possible.
