Muscle-Propelled Force Feedback: accepted at CHI 2013

Muscle-Propelled Force Feedback: accepted at CHI 2013

Video of participants and myself showing Muscle-Propelled Force Feedback (youtube) Force feedback devices resist miniaturization, because they require physical motors and mechanics. We propose mobile force feedback by eliminating motors and instead actuating the user’s muscles using electrical stimulation. Without the motors, we obtain substantially smaller and more energy-efficient devices. Our prototype fits on the back of a mobile […]

Biohacking and Brain Computer interfaces: the future of Human Computer Interaction (video/youtube) As a discipline, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) has always wandered on the boundaries between art and science, mainly due to its multidisciplinary genealogy, but often because it is a process of envisioning and questioning the future. The ideas of Cyborg, Augmented Humans and Bio-Feedback […]

Battle of the DJs: an HCI perspective of Traditional, Virtual, Hybrid and Multitouch DJing

Battle of the DJs: an HCI perspective of Traditional, Virtual, Hybrid and Multitouch DJing

To be presented at NIME 2011 (New Interfaces for Musical Expression, Oslo ). The remainder of the program is very interesting, so please feel free to look around here. What about DJing? How does it equates within an HCI perspective? What forms of interaction exist with DJ gear? How can one classify those interactions/gear? The […]
