CHCI Playdate: Perceptive Pixel by Chris North

Friday, September 19, 2014
Location & Time: 

Moss Arts Center - Sandbox (8:30-9:30am)

Join us as we hear from Chris North, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Center for Human Computer Interaction. He will be discussing the new technology, Perceptive Pixel, which Virginia Tech recieved as a gift from Microsoft Research.

These units support HD display, multi-touch interaction, and pen-based interaction.  What new types of interactive applications might these devices enable?  How could they be used to improve interactivity in data analytics, perhaps via sketching, bi-manual multi-finger data manipulation, or collaboration?  How could such devices fit into an "ecology" of diverse types of interactive devices?  How can software be designed to support development of such interactions?

"Playdates" are open discussions of topics and ideas from ICAT, CHCI, Virginia Tech, and the community. We welcome any interested students, faculty, and community members to join these discussions, and enjoy coffee/pastries from the Next Door Bake Shop!
