We will have two guest researchers at the TAI Studio in the next two weeks. During this time, we will work on an application and extension for auditory augmentation; namely systems to connect remote spaces and to augment status information to door sounds. If you happen to be around, don’t hesitate to drop me a line (e.g. to have a chat around lunchtime).
