  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • 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. ...
  • 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 ...
