About NewBraveWorld
An "Internet-of-Things" is under construction with technologies for 
unique digital identification (RFID), geolocation (GPS), embedded 
computing (ubiquitous or pervasive computing) and mobile networking 
(e.g. wifi, wimax, umts/3g). Places and objects become linked to 
digital media which can be everywhere people are.

Our digital life and social interactions are going to happen through 
tangible augmented objects and our physical environment will become 
the playground of new social and artistic behaviors, interventions, 
actions both in data and media spaces.

"New Brave World" proposes 4 workshops exploring the roles of 
artists, designers, media makers and creative scientists/developers 
in this context of the merge of digital and physical spaces.
