This is where you sign up for groups. There is an example table below for declaring a group. If you find that a group is already doing something similar to you and your group, please feel free to talk amongst yourselves to find a middle ground. Also please contact the Owner from the projects page to find out their expectations/concepts…if any.

If you don't feel like you are getting traction with others on your project please look at those groups that already have 2 people and make yourself available. A fundamental lesson for this class is to learn to be comfortable with the unknown.

Please add a table similar to this one to the relevant section of this page

Using Astrowheelie for power chairs

Project Name Astrowheelie for Power Chairs
Project Description This is an extension off of the Astrowheelie project that Thad described in class. Shepherd Center has requested an expansion of Astrowheelie for power wheelchairs. The goal would be to find a way to mount the existing game to power wheelchairs (I am in a wheelchair aka live test subject), and develop new games for power wheelchairs. This has possibility for publication.

Need to brainstorm further on the idea.

Gloved Interface Use This is a project lead by James Clawson(jamer at cc dot gatech dot edu ) that involves evaluating the use of gloves with touch screen interfaces. In regions where gloves are needed during the winter seasons how difficult or easy is it to navigate on your device for example on your iphone.

Project Title Gloved Interface Use
Project Description Apply UCD principles to design, prototype, and evaluate mobile UIs for gloved use

Mobile gestures for runners This is a project that stems from the research that was discussed by Seungyon in class. We are looking to use gestures within an athletic purpose (i.e. think Nike + on steroids). We may also more generally explore the range of gestures that can be used while running. We're considering a range of gestural technology including proximity sensors and a haptic gesture glove.

Project Title Use of mobile gesture within running

Super Remote: TV Remote using a wiimote

This project will use a wiimote as a sensor and an IR wand with 2 buttons as the TV remote. An open source media pc software package will be used as the software to control the TV, tentatively we will be using MythTV. The idea is to be able to drag through the tv guide like a google map, flick through it quickly, and pick exact shows. Also, while watching TV to be able to flick through channels and implement other cool ways of controlling the TV's ui. Basically we want to make this like a touch screen from a distance.

Project Title Super Remote: TV Remote using a wiimote
Project Description see above

Project Title EfficiDrive
Project Description An in-car hardware device with accompanying software that tracks fuel consumption for trips. The software will provide efficiency data for routes in a GUI, allowing the user to customize their trip to minimize fuel consumption. It may also provide feedback in the form of driving tips to increase efficiency-oriented driving skills. The software will be designed as a game that challenges the driver to become more miserly with their energy use. The ability to share route data and 'compete' with other users is also a goal of the project.
