People now have access to many sources of data about their health and wellbeing. Yet, most people cannot wade through all of this data to answer basic questions about their long-term wellbeing: Do I gain weight when I have busy days? Do I walk more when I work in the city? Do I sleep better on nights after I work out? We built the Health Mashups system to(More)
The Aware Home Research Initiative (AHRI) at Georgia Tech is devoted to the multidisciplinary exploration of emerging technologies and services based in the home. Starting in 1998, our collection of faculty and students has created a unique research facility that allows us to simulate and evaluate user experiences with off-the-shelf and state-of-the-art(More)
The increasing storage capacity and necessary redundancy of data centers and other large-scale IT facilities has drawn attention to the issue of reducing the power consumption of hard drives. This work comprehensively investigates the power consumption of hard drives to determine typical runtime power profiles. We have instrumented at a fine-grained level(More)
Power consumption is a problem affecting all forms of computing, from server farms to mobile devices. Hard disks account for a significant percentage of a machine's power consumption due to the mechanical nature of drive operation and increasingly sophisticated electronics. Due to this fact, there has been much research conducted with aims at reducing the(More)
We have developed and deployed a multimedia museum installation that enables one or several users to interact with and collaboratively explore a 3D virtual environment while simultaneously providing an engaging and educational, theater-like experience for a larger crowd of passive viewers. This interactive theater experience consists of a large, immersive(More)
Fully autonomous hobbyist drones are typically controlled using bespoke microcontrollers, or general purpose low-level controllers such as the Arduino[1]. However, these devices only have limited compute power and sensing capabilities, and do not easily provide cellular connectivity options. We present <i>Captain Buzz</i>, an Android smartphone app capable(More)
