#CSUNATC19 Audio: Brains, Trains And Drains With Touch Graphics


Last year, in San Diego, Shelly and J.J. had a chance to try a perceptible snack
on the Exhibit Hall floor. In what might be the wildest follow up interview for this year, Shelly was able to touch a wide assortment of non candy related items thanks to Steve Landau and Lindsay Yazzolino of Touch Graphics. Shelly demonstrates a working prototype of a talking tactile brain that has been created for Maryland s National Museum Of Health and Medicine. She also learns about subway cars and well, you have to take a look at what else she discovered in order to understand the title of this interview. For more information about tactile design, visit the Touch Graphics website
