In this interactive tour, explore the future of digital experiences without traditional user interfaces and how ordinary objects can be brought to life through technology.
We are designers and inventors. We love design – for the software and the machines, for the simple joy of the craft, and ultimately for the experiences we create – and we put it to work for our clients. Modern design has outgrown its original remit. Today, designers are modern-day inventors, uncovering unmet needs, conceiving of new products, giving form and function to new concepts through a wide range of craft and science.
Explore the future of digital experiences without traditional user interfaces and how ordinary objects can be brought to life through technology. In this interactive tour at argodesign, you’ll experience early prototypes of light-based user interactions and other physical computing demonstrations that portend a new Integrated Reality, where the physical world, technology, and the self coalesce.
