IGARASHI Design Interface

PROJECT HOMEPAGE

Research Director: Takeo IGARASHI<br />
Professor, Department of Computer Science, Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo <br />
Research Term: 2007-2012<br />
<br />
Almost everything we use in our daily life today is a commodity bought at a store and our life is made possible by hconsumingh these commodities. However, living a life just by gconsumingh given information and goods is very sad. We believe that real humane life should be a life where people gcreateh something only he or she can create as a part of self-expression and gshareh it with others as a evidence of his or her existence.<br />
  The goal of this project is to develop computational systems that cultivate peoplefs creativity by supporting their self-expression in the form of digital media and real-world entities. To that end, we develop innovative software technologies that help people to achieve the following three goals: (1) to create sophisticated visual expression such as three-dimensional computer graphics and animations, (2) to design their own real-world, everyday objects such as clothing and furniture, and (3) to design the behavior of their personal robots to satisfy their particular needs.
