Welcome to DAPTEC. We are a team of researchers from Cardiff School of Technologies and Cardiff School of Art & Design working in collaboration with industrial partners Yard Associates Ltd and Cardiff City Council on a data physicalisation technology project.

DAPTEC stands for Data Physicalisation Technology. DAPTEC is about giving data a physical shape/ form and in doing so, making it more accessible, and inclusive.  Our team is interested in finding new tangible and creative ways of generating value from existing yet often invisible data. We believe that many transformational societal outcomes can be derived from improving the availability of data and in doing so, make it more meaningful.

The project is funded by the Welsh Government Smart Expertise (European Regional Development Fund).

Our Story

Systems Design

Getting closer. We have now started to work out how all the parts will fit together. Our interactive map will sit over the Neo-pixels and our PCB designs are our capacitive sensors.
