Join us at Digifest 2014 - Canada’s premiere digital culture festival!
On May 8th, 9th, and 10th experience the trends in design and technology that are transforming the world that we live in.
The question: “How are our cities being remade through emerging technology?” will be explored through Keynote Lectures and Panel discussions, from various perspectives, including:
+ Massimo Banzi (Co-founder of Arduino) on Open Source Making
+ Daan Rooseegaarde (Principal Studio Roosegaarde) and
Eric Brockmeyer (Disney Interactive Research) on Interaction Design
+ Mark Rolston (Founder argodesign, former Chief Creative Officer frog design) on Hardware/Software Product Design
+ Expert panel discussions on: Cleantech, Big Data, Wearable Technology, Mass Customization and Gaming & Social Change
+ Many more incredible speakers and performances!
Also, encounter interactive digital art projects like Terradynamica’s (FR) interactive 3D simulation of Paris and Luc Courchesne's 360˚ panorama of interactive video displays, where users can navigate a sprawling digital terrain using gesture-recognition and a hand-held controller to intuitively explore an environment and leave their marks within it.
From the international to the local, Digifest highlights digital creativity. On May 10th the Atrium of Corus Quay will be taken over for Intel Family Day featuring the Maker Showcase, Arduinofest and Wearable tech Demos. A non-ticketed event that will feature DIY projects and startup products at Toronto’s leading edge. Geared towards all ages there will plenty to see, play and hack!
