【出杭力】STANDOUT A nail that pokes out gets hammered down. Stick out far enough so no hammer can reach you. Stand out amongst the crowd. 【道程力】BLAZE THE TRAIL Live for the untouched terrain. Run at full speed on the path not yet born. No finish lines or stopwatches here. 【造山力】FORM THE PEAK Shape your own mountain from the ground up. Then be the first explorer to conquer this new summit.
One of the latest inventions at the MIT Media Lab is inFORM, a Dynamic Shape Display. Picture an area of 900 individual pegs that move dynamically based on the hand motions of someone across the room—or across the ocean. “The idea is physical telepresence. People can point, touch, and manipulate objects remotely over long distance,” […]
Hiroshi Ishii's research focuses upon the design of seamless interfaces between humans, digital information, and the physical environment. At the MIT Media Lab, he founded the Tangible Media Group in fall 1995 pursuing a new vision of Human Computer Interaction (HCI): "Tangible Bits." His team seeks to change the "painted bits" of GUIs to "tangible bits" by giving physical form to digital information. In 2012, he presented the new vision "Radical Atoms" to take a leap beyond "Tangible Bits" by assuming a hypothetical generation of materials that can change form and appearance dynamically, becoming as reconfigurable as pixels on a screen.
Prior to MIT, from 1988-1994, he led a CSCW research group at the NTT Human Interface Laboratories, where his team invented TeamWorkStation and ClearBoard. In 1993 and 1994, he was a visiting assistant professor at the University of Toronto, Canada. In 1986~87, he was a visiting researcher at the GMD in Germany.
He received B. E. degree in electronic engineering, M. E. and Ph. D. degrees in computer engineering from Hokkaido University, Japan, in 1978, 1980 and 1992, respectively.
