We describe the design and implementation of Arcade+, a custom-built arcade machine augmented with modern input devices to deploy and evaluate novel multi-modal interaction techniques for gaming. Arcade+ has gaze, feet, mid-air gestures, and multi touch sensing capabilities, as well as traditional arcade controls. Our modular design also allows for(More)
Irradiation, which is one of the standard therapies used to treat squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC), has been linked to enhanced tumor migration in carcinomas. In this study, we demonstrated that irradiation induced the phosphorylation of AKT, p38 MAPK and ERK. The combined activation of these pathways caused inactivation of GSK3β kinase,(More)
Eye tracking offers many opportunities for direct device control in smart environments, but issues such as the need for calibration and the Midas touch problem make it impractical. In this paper, we propose <i>AmbiGaze</i>, a smart environment that employs the animation of targets to provide users with direct control of devices by gaze only through smooth(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to investigate the expression patterns of cell cycle regulatory proteins and members of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling pathway in squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (HNSCC). STUDY DESIGN The expression levels of survivin, Bub1 B (budding uninhibited by benzimidazoles 1 homolog beta),(More)
In this paper we present a smart soccer shoe that uses textile pressure sensing matrices to detect and analyze the interaction between players' foot and the ball. We describe the sensor system that consists of two 3 &#215; 4 and one 3 &#215; 3 matrices sampled at over 500Hz with low power electronics that allows continuous operation (incl. wireless(More)
Motion visualization is an attractive way to provide support for a range of recreational and competitive sports. In skateboarding, sensor technology in particular can help visualization systems capture the motion of athletes to provide relevant information to athletes, judges, and spectators. This article describes the authors' proposed application of a 9D(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of cetuximab-based anti-EGFR treatment and Aurora kinase A / B knockdown as a function of Aurora kinase polymorphism in HNSCC cell lines. MATERIALS AND METHODS First, protein expression of Aurora kinase A / B and EGFR and Aurora kinase A polymorphism were studied in tumour samples. The(More)
In the domain of enterprise applications, organizations usually implement third-party standard software components in order to save costs. Hence, application performance monitoring activities constantly produce log entries that are comparable to a certain extent, holding the potential for valuable collaboration across organizational borders. Taking(More)
The objective was to evaluate the feasibility of sonographic evaluation of functional tongue motion as a tool to evaluate postoperative outcomes in human subjects using breathing-synchronized stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve—a novel therapy option for patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Sixteen patients with OSA (n = 16, age 60.4 ± 10.2, BMI(More)
