Upcoming Events
Frequent and varied events—such as lectures, colloquia, symposia, and workshops—play an active role in the continuing vitality and momentum of the Media Lab.
Jun 19 14 - Oct 31 14

Muriel Cooper, Marvin Minsky, Seymour Papert: each of these three pioneers defied convention, rejected norms, and adored the impossible. Marvin taught us how uncommon common sense was. Seymour forced us to think about thinking. And Muriel showed us that the medium was not the message. Without them, the Media Lab would never be what it became.

We invite you to explore a new public exhibit in the lobby of the Media Lab (75 Amherst Street, Cambridge MA) celebrating the work of these three unique minds, and their influence and impact upon the history of the Media Lab.

V. Michael Bove

Digital Synesthesia is the concept of using sensors and mobile technology to create a user experience that mimics the way people use their senses and enables the perception of information that is outside of our sensory spectrum. Modern technology already offers the ability to detect this information, but what has not been achieved is the way for our brains and body to incorporate this new information as a part of our sensory tool-belt. Then we can truly begin to understand our surrounding world in a new and undiscovered way.
