Touching Technology | Marcelo Coelho

 We find new ways to communicate through technology every day, but sometimes our communication lacks a human element. Designer and researcher Marcelo Coelho develops news ways of interacting with technology. From gas molecule-like art installations to paper integrated with electronics, Coelho is pushing the boundaries of what it means to interact and be a part of our digital world. Perhaps his most immersive creation is Six-Forty by Four-Eighty, a digital display of individual physical pixels that can be touched and communicate only through the human body. Tune into this TEDxBeaconStreet talk and learn more about how Coelho is blazing the trail to create new physical human experiences that could help determine the future of communication as we know it.
