Well it's that time of year again, and IGM will be participating in the Imagine RIT festival in a variety of ways! First up is our yearly presentation of the New Media Team Projects, including SociaLaser (location number 241), Hydropic (273), Sketchbox (365), Sketchbox (365), Iron Horizon: Diplomacy is Dead (346), Bad Astro: Tangible Interface Design (235), the Boiler House: an Interactive Coffee Table (256), and Amphora: a Social Media Web Application (366), under the direction of Prof. Michelle Harris and our colleages in CIAS (Prof. Adam Smith and others).
There will also be a Jazz Improvisation with Prof. Al Biles playing with GenJam, a software package based on genetic algorithms that "learns" to trade fours in real-time. This year's addition is a visual feedback and visualization system (477). Prof. Bayliss and Prof. Schwartz have a team of students working with RIT Facilities Management on a full-featured virtual golf exhibition (location 145). Prof. Egert, Prof. Harris and Prof. Goins in Liberal Arts have been leading a team working on a Facebook game centered on Museums and Modern Art (location 192), and Prof. Schull and his team in the innovation lab will also be showing off The Word Sensorium: Poetry, Jazz, and Animation (482). Prof. Jacobs will be showing off a Mathematical Advenure game on the OLPC in the GCCIS Atrium, as well as Open Video Chat for Deaf users of the OLPC. A number of other games for education will be shown on the OLPC over in the RIT Innovation Center, and our Higher Play College Survival Card Game will be at the Venture Creations and Simone Center Business Fair. We hope everyone has a wonderful event, and a great time seeing a little bit of our recent work this year!
