  • Peters, Benjamin J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A high resolution reconfigurable mold has been sought after for over 150 years. An ideal reconfigurable mold would be capable of producing detailed surfaces for use in molding and be capable of fast surface reconfiguration. ...
  • Berlin, Matthew Roberts, 1980- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    The process of mammalian predatory sequence development offers a number of insights relevant to the goal of designing synthetic characters that can quickly and easily learn complicated and interesting behavior. We propose ...
  • Ridley, Brent (Brent Alan), 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    Forty years of exponential growth of semiconductor technology have been predicated on the miniaturization of the transistors that comprise integrated circuits. While complexity has greatly increased within a given area of ...
  • Carr, David (David Alexander) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This work proposes a new class of design and fabrication interfaces for digitally created objects, which the author terms augmented fabrication machines. By enhancing traditional fabrication machines with rich new input ...
  • Schoner, Bernd, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Real-world systems that have characteristic input-output patterns but don't provide access to their internal states are as numerous as they are difficult to model. This dissertation introduces a modeling language for ...
  • Schwartz, Marc (Marc S.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    This thesis presents a software architecture for developing art and design tools that automatically capture the artist's interaction and records the entire creative process. The software uses the artist's interaction with ...
  • Torres, Obed E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Chin, Ryan C. C., 1974- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Developing a design methodology that accounts for system- and component-level parameters in the design of products is a challenge for design and manufacturing organizations. Designed products like automobiles, personal ...
  • Sargent, James Randal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Sun, Amy (Amy Teh-Yu) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Robotic vehicles walk on legs, roll on wheels, are pulled by tracks, pushed by propellers, lifted by wings, and steered by rudders. All of these systems share the common character of momentum transport across their surfaces. ...
  • Butera, William J. (William Joseph) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    A paintable computer is defined as an agglomerate of numerous, finely dispersed, ultra-miniaturized computing particles; each positioned randomly, running asynchronously and communicating locally. Individual particles are ...
  • Travers, Michael David (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1996)
  • Fitzgerald, Brent Paul (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis envisions the future of trust and social commitment in a highly connected society. Starting with a distributed, democratized labor force and economies of efficient niche production and consumption, we predict ...
  • Rosenberger-Shankar, Tara, 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1998)
  • Petron, Arthur J (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    The prosthetic socket, the mechanical interface between an amputated residuum and an external prosthesis, is of critical importance to the performance of a prosthetic limb system. Conventional prosthetic socket technology ...
  • Cranor, David (John David) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Computers as we know them are fading into the background. However, interaction modalities developed for "foreground" computer systems are beginning to seep into the day-to-day interactions that people have with each other ...
  • Marmasse, Natalia, 1962- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Two decades of computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) research has addressed how people work in groups and the role technology plays in the workplace. This body of work has resulted in a myriad of deployed technologies ...
  • Lifton, Joshua Harlan, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    A hardware and software platform has been designed and implemented for modeling, testing, and deploying distributed peer-to-peer sensor networks comprised of many identical nodes. Each node possesses the tangible affordances ...
  • Ramasubramanian, Vasant (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Quadrasense explores futuristic applications in environmental sensing by integrating ideas of cross-reality with semi-autonomous sensor-aware vehicles. The cross-reality principals of telepresence, augmented reality, and ...
  • Farbood, Morwaread Mary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    This thesis presents a quantitative, parametric model for describing musical tension. While the phenomenon of tension is evident to listeners, it is difficult to formalize due to its subjective and multi-dimensional nature. ...
