Over this past weekend, E2i Creative Studio housed UCF students in its lab, all diligently working through their short time off from school, work, and day-to-day life… and to do what? Make games.
See our article in the Huffington Post:
Passion is part of what makes us human, what separates us from those logical-thinking machines called computers. And if we are passionate about what we do, it will be obvious to all around us.
Passion is an inherently personal thing; we cannot be trained to be passionate about something. Being the best at something doesn’t necessarily make us passionate about it. It just means we do it better than anyone else.
Last week Orlando was the gathering place for the Association of Professional Futurists, and E2i Creative had two opportunities to interact with these fascinating, thought-provoking consultants. On Friday, May 3rd, the Gathering met at IST in the morning and toured several IST labs, including E2i Creative, where they saw compelling simulations from three specific projects.
E2i interns, during the spring 2013 semester, were tasked with creating a prototype for a whole body experience using two Kinect tracking devices. This experience was providing insight into possible activities under a National Science Foundation grant exploring whether whole body metaphors might increase learners’ understanding of physics concepts. For their project, the interns explored the physics of Simple Machines.
