Research

KINECTWheels: Wheelchair Input for Motion-Based Video Games
The increasing popularity of full-body motion-based video games creates new challenges for game accessibility research.
KinectArms
Gestures are a ubiquitous part of human communication over tables, but when tables are distributed, gestures become difficult to capture and represent.
Affective Computing
Evaluation of a user's emotional experience with technology is not well understood, especially when the primary goal of a technology is to entertain (e.g., computer game) or to invoke an emotional experience (e.g., animated film).
