News Brief: Using 3D Printing to Produce "Printed Optics"

ChessScott Hudson, professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute, and Karl D.D. Willis, a Ph.D. student in the School of Architecture's Computational Design Lab who is co-advised by Hudson, have worked with Disney Research, Pittsburgh, to adapt 3D printing to create customized, interactive devices that have optical sensors, display and illumination elements embedded directly in their structure.

The technology is being presented this week at the ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology in Cambridge, Mass. Read about it in Gizmag and check out the project website.
