Ken Camarata
While working on my Master of Architecture thesis I was introduced to an exciting area of research that blends computation and the built environment. Inspired to explore it further, I began to read about tangible and ubiquitous computing. Soon my architecture thesis took a twist and I was designing and building a tangible user interface. The thesis for my professional Master of Architecture degree became Navigational Blocks, a tangible query interface. Since then, my interest in embedded computation and human-computer interaction (HCI) has steadily grown.
