TableHop An Actuated Fabric Display
TableHop An Actuated Fabric Display

Display that provides controlled self-actuated deformation and vibro-tactile feedback to an elastic fabric surface while retaining the ability for high-resolution visual projection.

NaviFields

Agency in Mid-air
Agency in Mid-air

Touchless interfaces allow users to view, control and manipulate digital content without physically touching an interface.

Interaction Mappings
Interaction Mappings

Computational approaches for the semi-automatic generation of gesture mappings for devices with low gestural resolution

Haptic Texture
Haptic Texture

Haptic systems usually stimulate the kinesthetic aspects of the sense of touch, i.e. force feedback systems.

Sparkle Hover Feedback
Sparkle Hover Feedback

Sparkle stimulates the fingertip with touchable electric arcs above a hover sensing input device.

MisTable Tabletop with a reach-through fog screen
MisTable Tabletop with a reach-through fog screen

A tabletop system that combines a conventional horizontal interactive surface with personal screens between the user and the tabletop surface. These personal screens, built using fog, are both see-through and reach-through.

SkinHaptics Ultrasound
SkinHaptics Ultrasound

SkinHaptics is a novel technology that can help to expand the output capability of on-body interfaces to provide tactile feedback without restricting the skin as an interaction surface.
