  • Slow Refresh Tactile Displays Nov 7, 2015 | No Comments

    Large format refreshable tactile displays, to the extent that they exist, are traditionally far too costly for the individuals that need them most. In this project we are exploring the use of 3D printing and low cost electronics to build modular refreshable displays that communicate digital information tactilely for people with visual impairment. Establishing new […]

    Managing Online Identities for the Deceased

    The death of a loved one can be a challenging time for survivors who are left to manage the deceased’s affairs. In many cases, our increasing amount of online data is exacerbating this issue. Our social media lives create vast quantities of personal data that remain after we die. However, these data are not like other assets that we include in wills or testaments. They are connected to a large number of friends who survive us, all with diverse needs.

    Technologies for Autism: SensoryPaint

    SensoryPaint is an interactive surface with the capability of superimposing the user’s reflection on a projected surface and “painting” this surface with balls of different textures and colors, which was designed to augment traditional therapies. This software uses a Kinect to detect the movements of the user and the balls. The user’s image is reflected on the screen, as well as their shadow superimposed on their reflection.

    Estrellita: Helping Caregivers and Clinicians of Preterm Infants

    We are designing, developing, and deploying an innovative and feasible mobile solution for collecting infant and caregiver observations of daily living (ODLs), sharing these data with their clinical providers, and visualizing and summarizing these data for both the parents and clinicians caring for these children. This system, called Estrellita, has been shown to be helpful in preliminary pilot studies, and now we are expanding its capabilities and evaluating Estrellita in a longitudinal field deployment.
