This paper provides an overview of a collaborative design effort that involves computer scientists, psychologists, and designers working together to investigate design methods to help in the creation of technology to people with cognitive disabilities. The focus of this effort was in developing techniques to help novice designers create technology(More)
Using tongue to access computer for people with none or minimal upper limb function has been studied in recent years. These studies mainly focus on utilizing mechanical or electromagnetic devices. These devices, however, must contact to people's oral cavity and cause hygiene problems or accidental ingestion. This work presents an interaction technique named(More)
CD47, a self recognition marker expressed on tissue cells, interacts with immunoreceptor SIRPα expressed on the surface of macrophages to initiate inhibitory signaling that prevents macrophage phagocytosis of healthy host cells. Previous studies suggested that cells may lose surface CD47 during aging or apoptosis to enable phagocytic clearance. In the(More)
Smartwatches are emerging as wrist-based computers capable of complex calculation and communication, and the computer science curriculum should reflect the challenges and opportunities that they provide in the education domain. This paper puts forth an experience report focused on efforts to incorporate smartwatches in an upper-level undergraduate mobile(More)
This demo features smartwatch applications created by junior/senior CS students in a mobile development course. The course featured the Pebble smartwatch, with an e-ink display, vibrating motor, and accelerometer. Smartwatches enhance mobile device use by acting as a secondary display and providing immediate notifications, but designing for them has(More)
— Humanoid robots that resemble human body, language and/or actions enable promising interactive agent behavior in people's life. The humanoid factor of being " like-a-human " implies that the interaction with a humanoid robot shares similarities with human-to-human communications. Designing a humanoid robot must take the users' perception of its social(More)
Tongue-computer interaction techniques create a new pathway between the human and the computer, with particular utility for people with upper limb impairment. This study investigated the usability problems of camera-based tongue computer interface reflected through the user behavior and participants' feedback; specifically the exploration of referential(More)
