Grad School for Gadgeteers: 10 Ways to Fuse Technology and Art

Slide show from the N.Y.U. Interactive Telecommunications Program 2008 winter show

ITP, which bills itself as a "hi-tech fun house," is a two-year graduate program in alternative media, in which students design games, build musical instruments and create works of interactive art.

Take a peek at some of the highlights of the projects exhibited at last week's winter extravaganza in a photo slide show.
