"wonderfl" is collaborationing with Mr. Shigeru Kobayashi of IAMAS about physical computing.
Physical computing is a field of study where instead of using standard attachments to computers, (keyboard, mouse), we directly use various sensors and derices to physically interact with computers.
Creating something out of scratch using hardware may seem too difficult for those without experience. However with this collaboration, wonderfl will be able to provide an environment where the user can easily start to try physical computing with an opportunity to learn more from other users.
We hope to expand our horizons to fields such as media art in the future.
