The show that brought you the true love robot, the virtual reality dragon, and the texting hoodie is back on May 17 and 18, when students at the NYU Tisch Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) will mount their annual interactive spring exhibition. The two-day event, free and open to the public, allows attendees to view and interact with what Gizmodo has described as “the weirdest, coolest, most insanely inspired geek projects around.”

Officially known as the “center for the recently possible,” the Tisch ITP program has attracted worldwide attention as an incubator for technologically minded artists seeking to merge the latest in “maker” technology to foster social, political and artistic expression, as well as practical applications. Established in 1979, ITP graduates have gone on to develop internationally renowned products, companies and works of art. Alumni include Dennis Crowley (Foursquare), Tom Igoe (Arduino) and LED visual artist Leo Villareal.

The interactive exhibition will be held at the NYU Tisch Building at 721 Broadway, 4th Floor South, New York, NY. Exhibition hours will be 5-9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17 and 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 18. Select projects will start get listed on the ITP show website one week before the show. For more information, call 212-998-1880 or email itp.inquiries@nyu.edu.
