What happens when sci-fi becomes reality? Today technologies that were once reserved for the movies are now in the palms of our hands and are changing the way we interact. Designers are molding the way these new developments fit into our everyday life.

Join DesignPrep and John Underkoffler, the 2015 winner of the National Design Award for interaction design, to explore how interaction designers are challenging the way we relate to our machines. Use your everyday life as inspiration to design and prototype your own technology of the future. No experience necessary.
