This weekend (October 20th and 21st) CASA comes to the Bloomsbury Festival with exhibits which communicate our work on the virtual and digital city and connect it to the physical. We'll be at the Building Centre on Store Street all weekend with Pigeon Sim (thanks to an Xbox Kinect, users can flap their wings and fly around a virtual London), Roving Eye (using physical models to simulate pedestrian behaviour) and the London Data Table (which projects location-specific London data in real-time onto a table shaped around the boundary of London).
Workshops around these exhibits will delve into how these demonstrations were built, what they show and where the information and data comes from, discover how they can connect with local residents, and we'll be asking how the next generation of CASA tools could benefit you! The demonstrations will run all day, with workshops in the morning and afternoon to focus on each piece in more detail.
