Featured Projects

In order to explore the non-locative potential of augmented reality, this project uses AR in conjunction with motion capture technology to create stories that are not location specific. These stories, which often focus on elucidating abstract concepts, are designed to be fully immersive while existing in whatever location the users inhabits while watching them. These stories are then combined into a single interface, which allows the user to switch between them as if they were channels on a television.
In this study, we address the problem of performing continuous speech recognition where audio is not available (e.g. due to a medical condition) or is highly noisy (e.g. during fighting or combat). Our Tongue Magnet Interface (TMI) uses 3-axis magnetometers to measure the movement of a small magnet glued to the user‚ tongue. Tongue movement corresponding to speech is isolated from the continuous data by comparing the variance of a sliding window of data to the variance of signal corresponding to silence. Recognition relied on hidden Markov model (HMM) based techniques.
This project is developed through an ongoing collaboration with the Historic Westside Cultural Arts Council. Through a series of design workshops and public events, we are co-designing mobile and social technologies to help cultivate a shared community identity to support local civic engagement. By working directly with community members, we are able to build technology platforms suited to their specific needs and which amplify their values and concerns as the community goes through significant changes.
