Course Organizer(s):



    Course Description

    This course surveys emerging user-interface media: display technology, stereoscopic graphics, eye­ tracking, speech, and spatial input. For each, the underlying theories of device operation are explored, detailing examples of current “products.” It discusses the current status and future potential of these interfaces, including merits, limitations, and range of suitable applications. Instructors offer practical advice toward using these technologies at the interface, and present demonstration systems built by themselves and others.
