Featured Projects

People with severe motor disabilities such as ALS may not be able to move their facial muscles to communicate. This study is examining the salient features of facial expressions in order to create "emotional prosthetics" - ways for people with disabilities to express emotion. The resulting prosthetics will be controlled by voluntary and involuntary brain signals.
Considering the fact that the in-person social interactions distinguishes movie theaters from other competitive distribution channels of films such as streaming services, our project aims at taking advantage of the co-presence of audience to create more social interactions through an interactive device within the unique physical space of movie theaters so as to deliver a more engaging and fulfilled social moviegoing experience.
We analyze challenges in using CSCW technologies for practicing grassroots politics and offer suggestions on how to address them through creating a localized culture of technology practice
