Carlo Ratti: Architecture that senses and responds
With his team at SENSEable City Lab, MIT's Carlo Ratti makes cool things by sensing the data we create.

And he and his team create dazzling interactive environments from moving water and flying light, powered by simple gestures caught through sensors.
