Entertainment Fabtronics

This concentration consists of two tracks: FabTronics and Performance Engineering.

  • FabTronics is comprised of Tangibles, Mobiles, Fabrication and Mechatronics. Students will integrate sensors and actuators, robotics and small devices with processors, fabrication of mobile props for stage and for installations. Objects with embedded processors are networked and distributed.
  • Performance Engineering covers automation and live media technology and practices through computer modeling, pattern recognition, performance gesture analysis, and performance space instrumentation. Topics include motion capture data acquisition and conditioning, and wearable interface engineering, covering a variety of stage sensing technology and integration into larger presentation systems.
