About Us

The Interact Lab of the University of Sussex is a research lab within the School of Engineering and Informatics. The lab is part of the creative technology group and brings together staff and post-graduate researchers from Informatics, physics, engineering and design to pursue research in human-computer interaction.

Our goal is to research and create novel, creative and useful interactive systems through innovative applications that draw on basic science. Our recent focus has been on creating fog-based displays, acoustic levitation, mid-air haptics and acoustic metamaterials. Our driving research motivation is to create magical interactive experiences that people would often consider impossible. The lab is comprised of doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers, artists-in-residence, support staff and three permanent members of staff. Our research is funded by both industry and government funding bodies.
