Interactive Futures Lab is an interdisciplinary group at the OCAD University in Toronto. We create novel interfaces for new physical technologies such as autonomous vehicles, cyborgs, robots, and tools for DIY making. Through our efforts, we hope to create socially, culturally, and ethically meaningful human-computer interactions for the future.
