Personal Sensors: Seing Through Engineered Eyes
Human augmentation via the vast knowledge base that is the Internet is only the beginning. Students at the University of Texas at Austin are beginning to craft personal sensors that can greatly augment what we can see, hear, taste, smell, and touch, paving the way to a fuller integration with cyberspace. These panelists will discuss both the future of personal sensors, and how to launch programs that encourage discovery and entrepreneurship in students.
Additional Supporting Materials
- You and your students can learn about the world by developing simple sensory augments, many of which are already available via your cell phone.
- Teaching about and using technology are often the same thing. Hands-on learning is particularly robust when exploring personal sensors.
- Personal sensors are likely to be big business, and wide dissemination of information by the Internet means everyone can participate.
