We present SensaBubble, a <i>chrono-sensory</i> mid-air display system that generates scented bubbles to deliver information to the user via a number of sensory modalities. The system reliably produces single bubbles of specific sizes along a directed path. Each bubble produced by SensaBubble is filled with fog containing a scent relevant to the(More)
BACKGROUND Rates of deliberate self-harm (DSH) were increasing in the United Kingdom during the 1980s and early 1990s, particularly among young adult males. Self-poisoning with paracetamol was the most common means, with overdoses of anti-depressants becoming more frequent. Changes to paracetamol pack size regulations in 1997 have been followed by a(More)
Monocyte function as reflected by phagocytosis of Candida albicans and chemotaxis towards zymosan-activated serum has been assessed in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Phagocytosis and random movement were significantly increased to a similar degree in both diseases when compared with controls (p less than 0.001). There was no significant difference(More)
Prematurity is probably the major factor associated with brain damage in newborns. Our growing knowledge of the biochemical mechanisms leading to the onset of labour at term allows the biochemical correlates of the epidemiological risk factors for prematurity to be understood. Infection is the major cause of early preterm labour and is now recognised to be(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of a CCNU and vinblastine chemotherapy protocol for canine mast cell tumours. Fifty-seven tumours in 56 dogs were evaluated, 37 had macroscopic disease and 20 had microscopic disease. A 57% response rate was seen in dogs with macroscopic disease for a median duration of 52 weeks. Dogs with(More)
etary riboflavin, neither were they related to EGRAC or plasma riboflavin. This supports the use of EGRAC, and, to a lesser extent, plasma riboflavin, as a marker of riboflavin status that reflects dietary intake. We do not agree with the suggestion that the improvement in folate status in the folate-rich diet should have compromised riboflavin status, as(More)
In this paper we discuss the concept of style, focusing in particular on methods of designing new instruments that facilitate the cultivation and recognition of style. We distinguish between style and structure of an interaction and discuss the significance of this formulation within the context of NIME. Two workshops that were conducted to explore style in(More)
This paper presents the concept of Resonant Bits, an interaction technique for encouraging engaging, slow and skilful interaction with tangible, mobile and ubiquitous devices. The technique is based on the resonant excitation of harmonic oscillators and allows the exploration of a number of novel types of tangible interaction including: ideomotor control,(More)
BACKGROUND One definite, one probable and several possible transmissions of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) have followed corneal transplantation. We report an incident in the UK in 1997 in which both corneas and scleras from a donor, subsequently confirmed to have had sCJD, were transplanted. The final clinical outcome for two surviving(More)
