Interactive Content Design

As the Internet of Things (IoT) expands, everything around us is coming online, and joining integrated networks. Even everyday items like furniture are going digital. We view all artifacts, physical and digital, as content. Honoring the unique perspectives of people, systems, and the environments they inhabit, we study the interactions between types of content, with the ultimate goal of formulating cohesive, holistic, and intuitive approaches that promote efficiency, ease of use, and effective communication, we focus on content design to enhance living. 

 
1.  3D Motion Sensing and Interaction

We develop novel magnetic motion sensing systems using multiple identifiable, tiny, lightweight, wireless and occlusion-free markers (Fig. 1), enabling dexterous interaction and tracking in unexplored areas.

 
2.  Dynamic and Adaptive Spatial User Interfaces

We design novel spatial interfaces dynamically adapting to users’ activities using situational awareness, robotic display, and virtual reality technologies (Fig. 2).
