Inventing the future of digitally augmented objects and environments.

Things That Think is inventing the future of digitally augmented objects and environments. Toward this end, Things That Think researchers are developing sophisticated sensing and computational architectures for networks of everyday things; designing seamless interfaces that bridge the digital and physical worlds while meeting the human need for creative expression; and creating an understanding of context and affect that helps things "think" at a much deeper level. Things That Think projects under way at the Lab range from inventing the city car of the future to designing a prosthesis with the ability to help a person or machine read social-emotional cues—research that will create the technologies and tools to redefine the products and services of tomorrow.
