Multimodal Nonvisual Computer Interfaces

Nonvisual computer interaction has largely centered around a keyboard input and audio output paradigm. Dependency on audio as the primary form of information consumption, risks cognitive overload for the indviduals that use these interfaces. This project explores novel ways of communicating these audio only outputs through nonvisual and nonauditory modalities. Establishing new multimodal ways to […]


Slow Refresh Tactile Displays

November 7th, 2015 by admin | 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 […]

Cooking with gas sensors

As food cooks, it releases various smells that can be used to discern its progress; however, humans cannot always discern these subtle changes. We are investigating how gas sensors can be used to not only detect these changes, but provide meaningful information to the cook. This investigation comes in three major parts. First, we must […]

Individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders often experience sensory perception impairments, which can lead to challenges such as sensitivity to loud noises or irritation from specific textures on their skin. Atypical movement, such as rocking, can be exhibited as compensation for this sensory perception impairment. Currently, therapists use dance therapy to stimulate the various […]
