  • Mistry, Pranav (Pranav K.) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    This thesis introduces 'Quickies', an attempt to bring one of the most useful inventions of the 20th century into the digital age: the ubiquitous sticky notes. Sticky notes help us manage our to-do lists, tag our objects ...
  • Chi, Pei-Yu, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    People who are not professional storytellers sometimes have difficulty putting together a coherent and engaging story, even when it is about their own experiences. However, consider putting the same person in a conversation ...
  • Zinman, Aaron (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Current mobile technology works well to connect individuals together at any time or place. However, general focus on one-to-one conversations has overlooked the potential of always-on group and community links. I hypothesize ...
  • Bdeir, Ayah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    In the past three decades, especially in the aftermath of September 11th, significant effort has been focused on developing technologies for aviation security. Security inspectors have considerable latitude to wave passengers ...
  • Peek, Nadya (Nadya Meile) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Rapid prototyping employs digital fabrication techniques to quickly manufacture parts. However, the available materials are not yet suitable for making strong, large or durable objects. Composites are materials which are ...
  • Lobovsky, Maxim B (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The vision of programmable matter is to create a blob of material that can transform itself into an arbitrary form. One promising approach for achieving programmable matter is to construct a chain of identical nodes that ...
  • Feldman, Assaf (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    Mobile and wearable interfaces try to integrate digital information into our everyday experiences but usually require more attention than is appropriate and often fail to do so in a natural and socially acceptable way. In ...
  • Kizelshteyn, Boris G. (Boris Grigory) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    We define proximal messaging as that category of information transaction that takes into account the physical, social and temporal proximity between the sender and recipient as it relates to the content of the message. We ...
  • LaPenta, Jason Michael (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis covers ongoing work into the design, fabrication, implementation, and characterization of novel passive transponders that allow range measurements at short range and at high update rates. Multiple RADAR measurement ...
  • Granger, Brett Dawson (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Campbell, Lee Winston (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Lefford, M. Nyssim, 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
  • Okamoto, Takashi, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Elements within the physical space are transformed through natural processes that change their properties over time. These transformations are part of our everyday experiences that are often informative, influential or ...
  • O'Toole, Ryan (Ryan Michael) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Red Ink is an open source social-financial web-service that enables people to share, aggregate, analyze, visualize and publish their financial transactions as individuals and ad-hoc groups, through data sharing campaigns. ...
  • Espinosa Christlieb, José Humberto (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    User interfaces to consumer electronics devices - Video recorders, phones, cameras, washing machines, microwave ovens, etc. - are getting too complicated to be easily used by ordinary consumers. We believe that what is ...
  • Jones, Birago (Birago Korayga) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    This thesis presents the concept of Reflective Interfaces, a novel approach to user experience design that promotes positive behavioral norms. Traditional interface design methodologies such as User Centered Design are ...
  • Follmer, Sean (Sean Weston) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    In this document we present new tools for remixing physical objects. These tools allow users to copy, edit and manipulate the properties of one or more objects to create a new physical object. We already have these ...
  • Horowitz, Damon Matthew (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Wu, Michael Daniel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Arnold, Kenneth Charles (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    When programmers face unfamiliar or challenging tasks, code written by others could give them inspiration or reusable pieces. But how can they find code appropriate for their goals? This thesis describes a programming ...
