Twitch Plays Improv is an experiment in participatory narrative creation that utilizes the live streaming video platform Twitch.tv as an arena for broadcasting improvisational theatre games. Drawing on the structures and implications of the "Twitch Plays Pokemon"phenomenon, Twitch Plays Improv digitizes the performative and participatory conventions of improv, allowing actors and audience members to collaboratively develop dynamic scenes and stories.
Videos are great tools for teaching, learning, and communication; however, because video editing is time-consuming and tedious there are few people who take on the task. Utilizing the advances that have been made in video editing tools and algorithms we could help to ease this burden. Quick-Cut is a video editing tool focused on narration videos. It attempts to cut down the time it takes to edit videos together, while still producing a quality final cut.
This project is exploring ways of using air gesture technologies, audio and haptic to facilitate exploration of STEM concepts by blind and low vision learners. Efforts will establish the efficacy of this approach, as well as best practices for creating air gesture interfaces that support exploration of a virtual reality space such as a simulated atom, wind tunnel or electrical system- all without the use of vision.
