I'm now starting as research assistant at the Media Computing Group.
My research topic will revolve around the Fab Lab, like personal fabrication, especially for smart textiles.
|PERCs: Persistently Trackable Tangibles on Capacitive Multi-Touch Displays: PERCs use the touch probing signal from capacitive touch screens to determine whether the tangibles are on- or off-screen. This allows robust capacitive tangible widgets regardless of being touched. (read more)|
