Faculty and Design students from the Osaka University of Electro Communications in Japan are visiting the Sheridan Institute and came by the Interactive Multimedia labs for a Web Authoring class with Dan Zen.

As you can see in the pictures, we had a wonderful time sharing work and ideas of what to build with new interactive technologies. We showed work in Video Motion Capture to the same effect as a WII but with an average camera, mobile prototypes with QR codes, sound beat analysis, pixel analysis combined with physics engine work to create interactive mazes from a maze picture, works with 3D from PaperVision in Flash, Adobe AIR projects and much more!
Sheridan has exchanges with the University and it was neat to see that as the students passed by a mural of last year’s students, that they recognized two of the faces from our Japanese visit!
Thank you to all involved in organizing the exchange and the tour. It was a wonderful experience, sharing ideas and seeing how our cultures are overlapping. We certainly welcome opportunities for exchange and of course encourage international students to consider our program – http://imm.sheridanc.on.ca
