In this cover article in ACM "Interactions" magazine, Assistant Professor Laura Devendorf and associated researchers propose a new kind of digital craftsmanship, one "in which we may craft with the digital and find ways to make the machines craft along with us, in some kind of digital crafts-machine-ship."
The ATLAS Institute passes a milestone today when the 100th student receives a bachelor's degree in Technology, Arts & Media (TAM), the institute's undergraduate engineering major. In all, the institute confers 23 bachelor's degrees today, which will bring the total to 120.
Making healthcare more affordable, effective and personal is one of the greatest challenges of our time. Directed by Assistant Professor Mirela Alistar, the Living Matter Lab is rising to that challenge.
It's difficult to overstate CU alumnus Alan Kay's influence on our modern digital landscape. His name shows up in Google searches for "who invented graphical user interfaces (GUIs)," "who invented the laptop" and "who invented object-oriented programming,"...

Tattoos that change color in sunlight, control systems that help robots anticipate your needs, integrating circuits into smart textiles: these are just a few of the projects demonstrated at ATLAS Institute's third annual Research Showcase, held in partnership with CU Boulder’s Research & Innovation Week.
ATLAS PhD students, Peter Gyory and Clement Zheng, took home the "Innovation in Interaction Design Award" from the International Festival of Independent Games (IndieCade) for their cooperative arcade survival game, HOT SWAP: All Hands On Deck.
ATLAS faculty members Matt Bethancourt and Danny Rankin started the Whaaat!? festival in order to geek-out with a group of like-minded game developers; in just the second year, the all-day event attracted more than 250 participants.
"Researchers from the University of Colorado Boulder's ATLAS Institute have recently developed a swarm of little shape-changing robots, called ShapeBots. These self-transformable robots...can change both their individual and collective configuration, in order to display and visualize information in a variety of settings."
