The pervasiveness of computing has extended into domestic realms, including the dining room. Beyond simply a place to consume food, the dining room is a social hub where family members meet and share experiences. Yet busy lifestyles can make it difficult to spend social time with your family. To provide a new solution for family bonding, this paper presents(More)
Huggy Pajama is a novel wearable system aimed at promoting physical interaction in remote communication between parent and child. This system enables parents and children to hug one another through a novel hugging interface device and a wearable, hug reproducing pajama connected through the Internet. The hugging device is a small, mobile doll with an(More)

AmbiKraf is a novel non-emissive analog fabric display that has rapid color changing capability. It is integrated into the soft fabric enabling novel animations and interactive scenarios in the normal clothes that we wear. The core novelty of this project lies within the actual implementation of a fabric embedded with Peltier junction semiconductor to form(More)
Families have strong desires to have fun together, even at a distance. "Food Media" is an exploration of appropriating food and food activities as a medium for family communication and entertainment, across generations and over a distance. Traditionally, food has always been a social hub which brings people together for communication and entertainment. As(More)
In this paper we propose a new technology of touch sensitive textile displays that can detect touch without adding additional sensors to a thermochromic inks and peltier semi-conductor display system. Without any changes to the hardware of the display, we present a method to modify the existing temperature controllers of pelter elements to detect impulse(More)
In this paper we outline a genealogy of Mixed Reality Lab (MXR) projects, their influencing factors both from the Asian region and also within the lab, the employment of "Blue-Sky Innovation" by the lab for ideation, collaboration and project generation, as well as discuss some major points of inspiration for MXR from various sources.
In this paper we present zSense, which provides greater input expressivity for spatially limited devices such as smart wearables through a shallow depth gesture recognition system using non-focused infrared sensors. To achieve this, we introduce a novel Non-linear Spatial Sampling (NSS) technique that significantly cuts down the number of required infrared(More)
