First week down; three to go! Since our launch, we’ve received much attention from students, faculty, and the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences (CIAS) here at RIT! We’ve gotten hundreds of inputs at each kiosk so far.
Keep reading for all of the exciting news!
On the first day of our data collection, one student posted about our project on Reddit which stirred public curiosity to this sudden pop-up installation. We were quickly known.
Our Twitter has gained a following as people have been tweeting about their interactions with our kiosks:
