Personal Fabrication and the Maker Revolution as seen by Prof. Jan Borchers from the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen University.
Holz and Baudisch propose a new model for touch detection using ultra-sensitive touchscreens that can detect fingerprints, increasing accuracy to 1.8 times that of capacitive sensing. This is one more step toward smaller yet more intuitive touchscreens and fewer missed buttons.
Today I had an interesting conversation with An Yu, a cognitive science major at UCSD. We were discussing the potential applications for understanding synchrony. Another graduate student we know has done some work on researching people’s ability to synchronize with each other. They measured how well they could keep a simple beat, even when the […]
