Our very own Becky Stern was in the news yesterday, in the ASU State Press, talking about Archie, the sensor squid, a project of ASU’s Reflective Living Group in the Arts and Media Engineering program:

The way the squid is set up makes it ideal for group collaboration, Stern added. In most office or research settings, working groups meet hunched over their laptops. Using the squid, which is fun and allows more than one person to work the controls, opens up communication and moves the work along, Stern said.

I don’t know about you, but the image of, say Intel executives, sitting around in a meeting manipulating a plushie squid tentacle interface is almost too joyful to bear.
