Unlike VR research for acute or short-term pain, which relies on pain "distraction," this research posits a new paradigm for the use of VR. In addition to(More)
Advances in technology provide artists with new opportunities for developing engaging works, however these often push the artist's technical ability. We address this issue in demonstrating that MIDAS can be applied to artistic practices with relative ease and at a low cost. The authors present, as a case study, <i>A Touching Harmony</i> - a flexible(More)
This poster presents a tool for designers with non-technical backgrounds to easily implement the design concepts of new interaction design projects, such as physical computing, tangible user interface and interactive media art. We simplified the connection of external input and output hardware and made augmented reality technology easily available within a(More)
Telepresence is an emerging market for everyday robotics, while limitations still exist for such robots to be widely used for ordinary people's social communication. In this paper, we present our iterative design approach toward an interactive bidirectional robot intermediaries along with application ideas and design considerations. This study also surveys(More)
—This paper describes an interactive social agent platform which examines anthropomorphic robot features in the mobile phone usage context. Our system is smart phone based robot agent that operates on a mobile network and co-located ad-hoc networks. It helps remote users communicate interactively with each other through the robotic interface which utilizes(More)
This paper presents a case study with Enron email dataset to explore the behaviors of email users within different organizational positions. We defined email behavior as the email activity level of people regarding a series of measured metrics e.g. sent and received emails, numbers of email addresses, etc. These metrics were calculated through EmailTime, a(More)
