If a recent show of work from the New York University Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) is any indication, the student-artists there are having way more fun than anyone in graduate school should. From hacking a piano to mix and dispense cocktails to rigging a Twitter-powered mobile of birds, students married tech to whimsy for their 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.
