We present a new methodology based on ferromagnetic fluids in which the user can have direct interaction (input/output) through a tangible and malleable interface. Liquid Interfaces uses the physical qualities of ferromagnetic fluids in combination with capacitive, multi-touch technology, to produce a 3D, multi-touch interface where actuation,(More)
We report our effort in engineering a high performance remote method invocation (RMI) mechanism for the Common Component Architecture (CCA). This mechanism provides a highly efficient and easy-to-use mechanism for distributed computing in CCA, enabling CCA applications to effectively leverage parallel systems to accelerate computations. This work is built(More)
In this paper, we present House, a messaging platform for members of geographically disconnected families to stay connected. House is a lightweight, real-time interface designed to help such families communicate with each other. Specifically, it helps families rediscover the joys of communicating trivial and silly information between each other and is a(More)
Since the beginning of the IEEE 802.11 technology its channel access in ISM bands was governed by simple rules to ensure fairness and coexistence: such as upper ceiling on maximum transmitted power, moderate out-of-band emission masks and requirement for tolerance to interference. However, over time these rules became outdated and no longer well suited for(More)
Large-scale screening of antiviral compounds that target dengue virus life cycle requires a robust cell-based assay that is rapid, easy to conduct, and sensitive enough to be able to assess viral infectivity and cell viability so that antiviral efficacy can be measured. In this chapter we describe a method that uses high-content imaging to evaluate the in(More)
The combined effect of Moore's law and the failure of Den nard scaling have led to multi-core mobile devices with immense computation capabilities. The biggest limitation of the computation capability for any mobile device is its battery. Mobile cloud computing is used to offload compute intensive tasks that affect a mobile device's battery. Mobile ad-hoc(More)
