Aaron Koblin: Visualizing ourselves … with crowd-sourced data

Aaron Koblin: Visualizing ourselves … with crowd-sourced data

Artist Aaron Koblin takes vast amounts of data — and at times vast numbers of people — and weaves them into stunning visualizations. From elegant lines tracing airline flights to landscapes of cell phone data, from a Johnny Cash video assembled from crowd-sourced drawings to the “Wilderness Downtown” video that customizes for the user, his works brilliantly explore how modern technology can make us more human.

Chris Harrison | Dynamically Changeable Physical Buttons on a Visual Display

The outcome of our investigations is a visual display that contains deformable areas, able to produce physical buttons and other interface elements. These tactile features can be dynamically brought into and out of the interface, and otherwise manipulated under program control.

Design Research Lab | Reflective Haptics

This project investigates a new type of feedback for touch screen styli: frictional actuation. The proposed pen has a ball on its tip, which is connected to an electromagnetic coil. This coil serves as a brake to the ball, enabling fine-tuned control for the force required to drag the pen over the surface.
