Due to the Corona virus epidemic and in accordance with RWTH Aachen University's recommendations, we have suspended all public events (Open Fab Lab Tuesdays, Cocoaheads, Aachen Maker Meetup), and all staff are working from home where possible, until further notice. You can reach us via our standard email and phone numbers and via Zoom videoconferencing. See the university blog for more information. (Mar 16, 2020)  

Our classes started online from April 7, 2020 on, see our class homepages. For all current teaching regulations of the Computer Science department due to Corona, see the Exam Committee (Prüfungsausschuss Informatik) Corona page.

We have initiated a regional initiative to help system-critical institutions with emergency supplies using 3D printing, lasercutting and other rapid digital fabrication techniques. See fightcorona.ac for details.

Headed by Prof. Dr. Jan Borchers, we work in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Grounded in Computer Science, we develop and study new interaction theories, techniques, and systems in areas like personal digital fabrication and personal design, tangible, mobile, and wearable user interfaces, interactive textiles, multitouch tables and interactive surfaces, augmented reality, and visual coding environments. Our goal is to make the Brave New World of interactive technologies useful by making it usable. Since starting in October 2003, we have become one of Germany's best-published research groups at CHI, the premier international academic conference in the field.

HCIC Logo We're part of the Computer Science Department and the HCI Center at RWTH Aachen University, Germany's top-ranked University of Technology and one of Germany's Excellence Universities. Our group is an Endowed Chair of the German B-IT Foundation.

Usability for Everybody in 18 Minutes

FLApp

FLApp, our mobile Future Lab Aachen App for iOS and Android that launched in 2017, takes you on a walking tour through Aachen's inner city. But instead of historical facts, you'll find out about the latest discoveries and inventions made by engineers and scientists at each location, some using Augmented Reality.
