C3RI Research Seminar - Shape-changing Displays: The next revolution in display technology?
Speaker: Dr Jason Alexander Lancaster University
Jason is a lecturer in the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster University. His primary research interests are in Human-Computer Interaction, with a particular interest in developing the next generation of interaction techniques.
His recent research is hardware-driven, combining tangible interaction and future display technologies. He was previously a post-doctoral researcher in the Bristol Interaction and Graphics (BIG) group at the University of Bristol. Before that he was a PhD student in the HCI and Multimedia Lab at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand. More information can be found at www.scc.lancs.ac.uk/~jason/.
Title: Shape-changing Displays: The next revolution in display technology?
Shape-changing interfaces physically mutate their visual display surface to better represent on-screen content, provide an additional information channel, and facilitate tangible interaction with digital content. This talk will preview the current state-of-the art in shape-changing displays, discuss our current work in this area, and explore the grand challenges in this field. The talk will include a hardware demonstration of one such shape-changing device, a Tilt Display.
