Facilities

Eye

Our lab is equipped with cutting-edge sensors and output devices, including EEG and wearable eye-trackers, head-mounted displays for augmented- and virtual-reality, gestural input systems, and various wearable devices such as smart watches.

Eye

The lab also supports research that relies on fabrication, physical computing, and tangible interaction.

Sensorium

Our members have privileged access to the Sensorium, a state-of-the-art space for specialised HCI research. Here, researchers can easily aggregate and analyse physical, psychological, and neurological real-time responses to novel user interfaces.
