Final project descriptions and videos for all groups, Spring 2013
1. Grupo Naidy: Our project is a serving system for restaurants, called ServiceCenter, that allows waiters to efficiently manage orders and tasks by displaying information about their tables.
4. TFCS: We are making a hardware platform which receives and tracks data from sensors that users attach to objects around them, and sends them notifications e.g. to build and reinforce habits and track activity.
6. The GaitKeeper: Our project uses a shoe insole with pressure sensors to measure and track a runner’s gait, offering opportunities for live feedback and detailed post-run analysis.
7. Team Colonial Club: The PostureParrot helps users maintain good back posture while sitting at a desk with a computer.
8. The Backend Cleaning Inspectors: Our project is to make a device to improve security and responsibility in the laundry room.
9. VARPEX: Richter Threads is a jacket that creates a new private music listening experience through motors which vibrate with bass.
10. Team X: A “Kinect Jukebox” that lets you control music using gestures.
11. Don’t Worry About It: The NavBelt will help navigating around unfamiliar places safer and more convenient
12. Do You Even Lift? Our project is a Kinect based system that watches people lift weights and gives instructional feedback to help people lift more safely and effectively.
13. Team CAKE: Runway is a 3D modelling application that makes 3D manipulation more intuitive by bringing virtual objects into the real world, allowing natural 3D interaction with models using gestures
14. Team Chewbacca: Our project is a system consisting of a bowl, dog collar, and mobile app that helps busy owners take care of their dog by collecting and analyzing data about the dog’s diet and fitness, and optionally sending the owner notifications when they should feed or exercise their dog
15. Lifehackers: Our project is a glove that allows us to control (simulated) phone actions by sensing various hand gestures
16. Team Epple: Our project is to use Kinect to make an intuitive interface for controlling web cameras through using body orientation
17. BlueCane: Our prototype is a navigational device for blind users that enables them to receive route-guided instructions via Bluetooth and cardinal directions using haptic feedback
18. Team %eiip: Our project is a smart bookshelf system that keeps track of which books are in it
19. The Elite Four: We have developed the Beepachu, a minimally intrusive system to ensure that users remember to bring important items with them when they leave their residences; the system also helps users locate lost tagged items, either in their room or in the world at large
20. Name Redacted: Our group is creating an interactive and fun way for students and others who do not know computer science to learn the fundamentals of computer science without the need for expensive software and/or hardware.
21. Oz: Oz authenticates individuals into computer systems using sequences of basic hand gestures
24 Cereal Killers: A program to create computer shortcuts that can be replayed using hand gestures.
25. AcaKinect: AcaKinect is voice recording software that uses a Kinect for gesture-based control, which allows content creators to record multiple loops and beat sequences and organize them into four sections on the screen, creating a more efficient and intuitive way of presenting a music recording interface for those less experienced with the technical side of music production.
