MDEI showcase: Digital Media - Design Principles and Practice
Showcasing exciting, new digital media projects created by uWaterloo Arts students in graduate courses taught this Fall by English Professor Marcel O'Gorman.

What you will see is a series of blue-sky product demonstrations that fit somewhere between "killer app" and science fiction.
