Each amplifier imposes deformations to an underlying grid, which in turn updates the corresponding strokes.Users can combine these amplifiers at will when applying them to an existing animation, promoting rapid experimentation.Skuid provides a set of motion amplifiers which implement a set of established principles of 2D animation.
Skuid leverages the freeform nature of sketching, allowing users to rapidly sketch, record motion, explore exaggerated dynamics using the amplifiers, and fine-tune their animations.
Technologies that allow autonomous robots and computer systems to quickly recognize and interact with individuals in a group setting has the potential to enable a wide range of personalized experiences.
By sensing brain waves using a series of EEG sensors, the level of activity is fed back to the user via 3D content in the virtual environment.
When the user is focused they are able to make changes in the 3D environment and control their powers.
However, scaling such experiences to support multiple virtual objects is a challenge as each one needs to be accompanied with a precisely-located haptic proxy object.
We showcase a solution that overcomes this limitation by hacking human perception.
In order to test the effectiveness of this approach in realistic scenarios, groups of five participants play an interactive quiz game with an autonomous robot, resulting in an ID assignment accuracy of 93.3%.
We present Gauss RFID, a hybrid RFID and magnetic-field tag sensing system that supports interactivity when embedded in retrofitted or new physical objects.
We present Psychic VR, a proof-of-concept system that integrates a brain-computer interface device and Virtual Reality headset to improve mindfulness while enjoying a playful immersive experience.
The fantasy that any of us could have superhero powers has always inspired people around the world.
Our system increases mindfulness and helps achieve higher levels of concentration while entertaining the user.
