Centre for Playware – The MIT Media Lab of Denmark?

Fantastic stuff! Knew nothing about them when I worked in Denmark!

Constructing Kids

I  invited myself to pay Centre for Playware a visit. This is a department of Technical University of Denmark (DTU), just outside Copenhagen. I was a part of a research project with them and ATR about the robot Telenoid (read more about that project here).  A friend from that project is doing his PhD here and thought it might be a good idea to see what they have been doing lately.  Centre for Playware is a lab-style research department in the crossfield between play and technology. The place is small and the staff list contains less than 10 people, ahead of this is professor Henrik Hautop Lund. The projects are state of the art when it comes to innovating technology and play. They are all based on movements, sounds, games, modules, fun and learning – though learning isn’t the main goal!
