The Sonified Fantasy Sports project has been exploring various ways to add sounds to online (web or mobile apps) fantasy sports in an attempt to make a more immersive user experience while also adding to the accessibility of fantasy sports for visually impaired or print disabled users. After identifying information needs and various strategies employed by users (who ranged from beginners to power users) we were able to identify a hierarchy in which to present information about my team and players using sound.
Our Passive Haptic Learning gloves teach the "muscle memory" of how to play piano melodies without the learner's active attention. These gloves can also help wearers recover sensation in their hands after a traumatic event, such as a partial spinal cord injury. The PHL gloves are fingerless gloves equipped with vibrators at each knuckle. As a mobile MP3 player plays each note ofa song, the gloves tap the finger that corresponds to the respective piano key.
Trigger Hunter, 2.0 is an iOS augmented-reality game that was designed in Spring 2017 and developed in Fall 2017. The objective for this application is to teach children about their own asthma and how to manage it in a fun and engaging experience. We decided to teach children specifically about the environmental triggers that can cause asthma and can be found in a common household. With the recent development of mobile augmented reality APKs such as ARKit, we decided to integrate this new technology within our game.
