Technology that is changing the scope and quality of many human interactions - including healthcare, social networking, education and civic engagement - is being created at the GVU Center and the Digital Media Graduate program at Georgia Tech . We invite you to explore and interact with that future technology at our Spring Research Showcase. What will be the next great innovation in mobile apps, digital design or wearable computing? At the research showcase, experience a hands-on vision of the ideas and applications that you may be carrying in your pocket or using in the workspace in the near future.

Users will be able to test drive many of the more than 80 demos including applications that let you text without looking, interact with virtual objects placed in real physical spaces, and learn to play the piano with a tech-enhanced glove.

Researchers will show off technology that is part of local community and government initiatives to create civic engagement and change. One example benefits cyclists using a new app that will allow Atlanta city planners to allocate funds for a new city biking infrastructure. Also, take a peek at forward-thinking designs, such as a wearable computing system for dogs with occupations. 

We look forward to seeing you on April 16th!
