Crafting Interactivity with Artcodes

Professor Steve Benford

Professor Steve Benford

Professor Steve Benford (@Profbenford) will explore how to design interactive surface decoration for all manner of objects - from greetings cards, to bowls to guitars - that can be scanned with mobiles and tablets to link to digital services. Artcodes (www.aestheticodes.com) are similar to QR codes, but are beautiful and you can draw them yourself. Steve will explore how Artcodes can be used to create user experiences that blur the line between online and the real world.
We'll also be getting creative and drawing & scanning interactive artefacts of our own.
