March 19, 1:00pm PT – A brief, but deep, dive into the history of computer/gaming hardware and software. Learn about nascent inputs: How did early MIT students play Space Wars!? How did the invention of the D-pad change everything? Why did Apple finally allow for more button mappings on the mouse? After the overview (and a bit of gossip), we’ll talk about how best to design the future of spatial computing, taking the best of what our predecessors have learned, and avoiding their mistakes.
