The Aachen Lab Demo: From Fundamental Perception to Design Tools

Demo at ACM CHI '23

ACM Digital Libary Link — Runner-Up for Best Interactivity at CHI'23!


This year, the Media Computing Group at RWTH Aachen University turns 20. We celebrate this anniversary with a Lab Interactivity Demo at CHI that showcases not past achievements, but the range of currently ongoing research at the lab. It features hands-on interactive demos ranging from fundamental research in perception and cognition with traditional devices, such as experiencing input latency and Dark Patterns, to new input and output techniques beyond the desktop, such as user-perspective rendering in handheld AR and interaction with time-based media through conducting, to physical interfaces and the tools and processes for their design and fabrication, such as textile icons and sliders, soft robotics, and 3D printing fabric-covered objects.
