Physical computing (and the special case of robotics) deal with the ways in which we can sense the world and make changes in the physical world using computers. We will explore these ideas through examples such as interactive wearable devices and small machines that can move around autonomously.

This session will explore the idea of computing “outside of the box”. Many people still think of computers as things that have keyboards, mice and screens, where most interaction is through these devices. Recent developments such as the internet of things, wearable devices, technology to help the elderly live independent lives and driverless cars have called into question the adequacy of this model. We will also illustrate how this technology scales up towards smart cities, automated production lines and bionic people.
