Projects I've Worked On


The World Was Created...(In 6 Days)

Created for the Making Things Interactive class at Carnegie Mellon University, the goal of this project was to create an interactive room powered by creative energy. It utilizes the human body and a Kinect camera as tools to co-create a digital world with the computer. More details and images coming soon.

Invisible Soundscapes

This project was created for the Software Structures for User Interfaces class at Carnegie Mellon University. It was inspired by The MIT Media Lab's Copenhagen Wheel Project, and a TED Talk by Julian Treasure. The google map displayed above illustrates noise data collected using my Android phone while walking around the Pittsburgh area. As you can tell, the data is a litle sparse, but I think it serves as incentive for crowdsourcing local noise data.

Tango

Tango is an interactive news reader created for the 2013 Tartan Hacks Hackathon at Carnegie Mellon University. It responds to a user's physical distance from the screen by adjusting how content and media is presented. Stay tuned for more details and images about the project.

1Key

1Key is a device that tracks a user's gaze and uses bluetooth to control any device that user is looking at. Here's a scenario, imagine you are hard at work on your computer furiously typing away solving a wicked problem when, you receive a text message. Now, you could pause your work, pick up your phone and respond to the message using it's feedbackless touchscreen keyboard, or you could use 1Key to switch your computer's keyboard to your phone as you glance over to respond to the message. Now imagine this scenario for every internet-enabled device you own (tablets, TV's, desktops), and you can begin to understand the power of the 1Key system. More details and images coming soon.

HaptiGo

HaptiGo is a navigation vest that directs wearers to their destination using haptic technology. Wearers feel a slight tap on the corresponding shoulder when it is time to turn a particular direction. More details and images coming soon.

Inform

Redesign of the Philip Johnson Colloquium poster: Origins of the Avant Garde in America. The poster was created for the Interaction Design Fundamentals class at Carnegie Mellon University. More details and images coming soon.

Rooted Magazine

Rooted is a digital gardening magazine for people associated with the do-it-yourself movement. The magazine explores topics, tools, and methods that lie within the intersection of technology and gardening. This Ipad Magazine was created for the Interaction Design Fundamentals class at Carnegie Mellon University. More details and images coming soon.
