UCLIC Research Seminar 24th of March: Audrey Girouard (Carleton University, Ottawa). Deformable and wearable devices: Leveraging new devices for more tangible interactions.

UCLIC Research Seminar 24th of March: Audrey Girouard (Carleton University, Ottawa). Deformable and wearable devices: Leveraging new devices for more tangible interactions.
Deformable and shape-changing devices offer users the ability to physically manipulate objects to interact with them, which in turns can offer new interaction techniques to users. When wearable, devices can integrate on the body or on clothes to make this interaction more ubiquitous. These devices…
