As part of this project seminar, every student will design, engineer,

and implement an interactive system or device. Each topic is the

offshoot of an ongoing research project and is advised by the respective

PhD student, Post Doc, or Prof. Baudisch. Current topics evolve around

the topic of "physical reality", i.e., either created using personal

fabrication tools such as laser cutters and 3D printers or created using

haptics machinery with the virtual reality goggles Oculus Rift.

Examples of past particularly successful past project seminars

include LaserOrigami, Haptic Turk, FaBrickation,  Imaginary Reality

Games, and gestureOutput.



Two 5 min presentations, documentation in the form of a Wiki-page, & Code Review at hand-off. Attendance of weekly meetings.


Topics will be given out on Tuesday, October 14th, at 12:30 in the HCI lab (main building, 2nd floor).
