Hi, I’m Tom Igoe.
I teach courses and workshops in physical computing and networking at the Interactive Telecommunications Program in the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, exploring ways to allow digital technologies to sense and respond to a wider range of human physical expression. Coming from a background in theatre, my past work has centered on physical interaction related to live performance and public space. I’m also researching ecologically sustainable practices in technology development and how open hardware development can contribute to that.
I’ve written two books on physical computing: Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers,co-authored with Dan O’Sullivan, and Making Things Talk I’m a semi-regular contributor to MAKE magazine on the subject as well. I’m also one of the core members of the Arduino development team.
I’m finally getting the chance to work with monkeys thanks to Anthony Di Fiore.
This is me:
