Federal President Horst Köhler visits Silhouettes experience at Expo 2010 (May 19, 2010)
Germany's Federal President Horst Köhler and his wife visited the German-Chinese House at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai today, and played the Silhouettes city building game with a group of German school children. After playing the game, Köhler stopped by the exhibition area in the German-Chinese House to see the city block he created with his group, and to discuss the ideas behind Silhouettes with Prof. Russell and Prof. Borchers.
The interactive experience was developed by Prof. Peter Russell's Chair for CAAD and Prof. Jan Borchers' Chair for Media Computing at RWTH Aachen University. Located inside a unique bamboo structure, Silhouettes lets visitors create their own city block using body gestures. Reminiscent of traditional Chinese shadowplay, each group of 16 visitors can use their digital body shadows to create buildings, trees, power lines and water pipes on a 15-meter video wall.
By letting visitors create a digital neighborhood on their own, the game is taking up the EXPO 2010 theme of urban development. The resulting city block of each group, together with a group photo, is made available online as part of a growing 3D virtual city.
The game runs on Apple hardware under Mac OS X. It was developed for the "Germany and China - Moving Ahead Together" initiative of both governments, and is the center of their German-Chinese House at EXPO that will be open until June 25, 2010. A two-player version of the system is installed at the Media Computing Group at RWTH.

Yvonne Jansen receives CHI 2010 Student Research Competition Award:
Yvonne Jansen, Diploma student at Prof. Jan Borchers' Media Computing Group, a B-IT endowed Chair at RWTH Aachen University, won the 2nd place in the Undergraduate Student Research Competition at ACM CHI 2010 today. Three undergraduate and three graduate (PhD) students received awards after a three-phase selection process from a total of 56 submissions. As a result, Yvonne received a medal and a monetary prize from ACM. Yvonne received the award for her work on Mudpad, a new technique to bring localized, active haptic feedback to multitouch tables and similar surfaces using magnetorheological fluid. Just for the competition, Yvonne created a small "travel" version of her table-size system, using the prototyping facilities at the group's Fab Lab. After Gero Herkenrath in 2008 and Marcus Reul in 2009, this is the third year in series for the Media Computing Group to bring home an award in this competition. CHI is the premier international conference in Human-Computer Interaction, organized by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), with a below-25% acceptance rate. The Media Computing Group conducts research in Human-Computer Interaction, and continues to be Germany's most successful research group in terms of archival publications at CHI (Apr 15, 2010).
