O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference
Westin Santa Clara
May 13-16, 2002 -- Santa Clara, CA

Building on the momentum and excitement of the O'Reilly Peer-to-Peer and Web Services Conference.



Sensor Technologies for Responsive Environments
Joseph Paradiso, Principal Research Scientist, MIT Media Lab

Track: Adaptive
Date: Tuesday, May 14
Time: 11:15am - 12:00pm
Location: Winchester

The narrow interaction of the keyboard and traditional pointing devices keeps the digital world locked to a desk or palm top, preventing it from fully realizing its potential as a powerful medium of interaction and expression. Paradiso describes the work in the Responsive Environments Group, where the development of new user interface devices for interactive spaces and multimodal, dexterous expression, can eliminate this barrier. Current and evolving projects will be described that detect user gesture by exploiting a variety of evolving sensor technologies. Many novel applications of these approaches will be demonstrated, including new musical instruments, interactive musical/graphical spaces, smart rooms, smart furniture, and sensing for wearable computer systems.
