Haptic Everyday

Design Platform, NUS DID

︎︎︎ View Projects
In this platform, haptics as a design consideration takes center stage. Design students explored materials through the lens of haptics. From this exploration, they defined new material systems for haptics and systematically characterized the haptic behavior of these systems. They then designed and built real world applications on top of the new haptic systems they developed.





Tangible Data

Design Platform, NUS DID

︎︎︎ View Projects
In this platform, students investigated data as a material. We operated on the premise that representing data in more tangible and interactive ways will lead to alternative interactions and sense-making that facilitate how people explore a specific data set of type. We also critically examined the many technical and design challenges around designing with complex data and making them tangible.

DIY AR Interfaces

Design Platform, NUS DID

︎︎︎ View Projects
The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the role of different digital contexts for living, working, learning, and playing. At the same time, it has exposed the fragility of the global supply network and fueled an already active DIY culture. In this design platform, students were tasked to pull these trends together and develop DIY tangible interactive experiences for a specific context, supported by fiducial markers and computer vision (a facet of augmented reality).
