Description of Course:

The use and opportunity for screenless interfaces is growing and this technology is expected to be one of the key media growth areas over the next few years. The purpose of the class is to explore the emerging area of screenless interface design to include oculus rift, google glass, wearables such as watches and wristbands, spatial interaction display, drones, augmented reality and important related enabling technologies such as natural language interaction. Application discussions for this technology will include health and medical related sectors, education, law enforcement, and business as well as entertainment. Class resources will include technology and project demonstrations, guest speakers, readings, lectures and other methods.

As a result of the class, students will understand design opportunities and challenges presented by screenless interfaces and develop a class project where course concepts are put into practice. No heavy programming required and students of all areas of interest and levels of technical skill are welcome.
