|Task Summary||All sTech tasks|
Choose a topic or project involving any sensor technology and prepare a presentation on it. Try to make an interesting and lively discussion section afterwards.
Or you could present to us what you have done or are planning to do for your individual project.
You should investigate other recent developments in interface design. The New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) or the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) are two of the most interesting sources for this. Look at the internet site, noting that the proceedings of the last three or four years' conferences are on-line. Look through these papers (there are many of them) and choose one that appeals to you. Prepare a short presentation on why the approach you've chosen appeals to you. Although you don't have to prepare a formal presentation, making sure you can display the paper (via the data projector provided) in addition to any images, videos or recordings normally makes things much more interesting. Try to have a look at what others are going to talk about if you can. NIME is a good place to look, but you don't have to use one of those papers. However, if you don't please clear the paper/subject you choose with your tutor to begin with.
The presentation itself will not receive a mark, but you will receive a 5% penalty from the entire module should you not present, (so, if you end up with 58%, you will actually get 53%).
While you do not need to write an essay, you should submit the information you have included in your presentations in the logbook, including links to documents, images, videos and web pages as well as a summary of your arguments and conclusions.
