This site covers the part of the option class "Mixed Reality and Tangible Interaction" covered by Anastasia. For the "Mixed Reality" part contact Jean-Marc Vezien.

The course addresses "beyond-the-desktop" interaction where visualization and interaction take place in the environment rather than through the traditional screen, mouse and keyboard. This part of the course presents a number of approaches to tangible and tactile interaction that exploit the characteristics of physical objects or physical space to interact with on-line information: touch technology (for different platformes), mobile interaction, classic tangible systems, augmented paper, fabrication, ubiquitous computing, etc.

Class intro stuff, first glance at tangible and tactile interaction,

Touch technologies and software frameworks. Slides

Touch design challenges. Tables, walls. Slides

Note: the slides include older material on touch technologies & frameworks, and on touch input and mobile devices. We no longer cover these in this class, but they are there for your information.

[ TUIs ]

First tangible systems, current uses and challenges. Interactive paper. Slides

Project description slides

What we expect:
(1) The day of the exam (30/01@9:30 in D101) please be ready to demo your work in ~10min. During the demo you should explain the concept/idea of the project, show us how it works (we will want to test it!), what technologies you used and anything else you want to communicate to us (challenges you faced and overcame, alternatives you considered, difference from initial idea, etc.). Make sure you have everything setup before we start so you can see the demos of your colleagues. You can rearrange the room if you want (but you need to fix it at the end of class).
(2) By the end of exam week (Sun 3/02) send us a 1-2 page report that includes: a title + a description of your project (1-2 paragraphs); 1-2 high-res images of your project running and being used. In the 1-2 page report you can add any other information you'd like to communicate (challenges you faced and overcame, alternatives you considered, difference from initial idea, etc.) - alternatively you can mention this last part in the demo. If you have videos, that would also be greatly appreciated (but not required).

[ presentations ]

Each week students will present a research paper (10min + 5min questions). Think of the motivation for the work, major contributions and how they were achieved/proven, and your own critique. Send a small summary to Anastasia or Jean-Marc the sunday before your presentation.
