Human Media Lab
An Inspiring Learning Environment
Opened in May 2012, the Human Media Lab is the world’s first ‘boutique’ laboratory, designed to inspire students through an innovative and creative workplace environment that doubles as a user interface.
One of the laboratory’s main features is an interactive flexible display that uses in-air gestures to control movement on the screen. The space is the result of a collaboration between famed industrial designer, Karim Rashid, and Roel Vertegaal, a School of Computing professor and director of the Queen’s Human Media Lab.
