The goal of this study is to understand how people interact with tangible user interfaces through play with the intent to support exploration, discovery, and learning of visual narratives. We designed the interactive system with the use of tangible blocks as primary interaction mode in mind, which contain various design elements of sequential art (graphic novels), for creating, editing, modifying visual narratives through different configuration and combination of blocks viewed under a device, such as such as a mobile phone in the form of augmented reality.
Students in Georgia Tech's interdisciplinary MS in Human-Computer Interaction program do multiple group class projects, and a capstone individual project. Some projects are presented as part of other labs listed here; others are showcased in the MS-HCI Project Lab.
The two-year program spans four schools: Industrial Design; Interactive Computing; Literature, Media and Communications (Digital Media Program); and Psychology. Approximately 50 new students enroll each fall semester.
