When “Geek” is cool

Ever wanted to know how to light up your clothing? Make an inflatable dress? Transform card into an interactive creature? Develop a game or commercial application? Shoot, publish and stream videos using your smart phone? Or learn about Motion Capture or Virtual Reality and what you can do with it? 

This Summer, CoLab brings you the opportunity to ‘Geek’ up fashion with Project Runways Diana Eng, become online savvy with Mohawk Media’s Helen Baxter, create interactive creatures and environments with Kim Newall, explore the depths of Virtual Reality with CoLab’s ‘VR guy’ Dr Roy Davies and learn the basics of Motion Capture with Gregory Bennett in the CoLab Summer Workshop Series. Be quick though, registrations close November 30th.
