Have you wondered what the future of cars is going to be? Will we be all using small airplanes to move between places? Would fast trains become the de facto means of transportation? Despite being an amazing mobility device, why did the Segway fail to gain the traction everybody thought it would? Does that reflect a failure on behalf of cities to adapt to new means of transportation? What is all the rave about Tesla electric cars? Why DIY prosthetics are becoming so widespread?
During this term, we will explore the notion of mobility in its broadest sense. Students will build telepresence robots, electric cars and bikes, wheelchairs, and prosthetics. They will imagine what the future of urban mobility is. We will also explore human movement in an artistic and dance forms.
