  • Donahoe, Matthew (Matthew Joseph) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    Going for a run is a great way to get exercise and feel rejuvenated, but it can also get repetitive and boring. In contrast, digital games can be very engaging and addictive but traditionally force players to be physically ...
  • McKinley, Ryan, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    In the United States, there is a widening gap between a citizen's ability to monitor his or her government and the government's ability to monitor a citizen. Average citizens have limited access to important government ...
  • Ducao, Arlene (Arlene Brigoli) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    As the human landscape changes ever more rapidly, environmental change accelerates. Much environmental information is publicly available as infrared satellite data. However, for the general user, this information is difficult ...
  • Tsang, Mary (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    A collaborative, interdisciplinary research project, Open Source Estrogen combines biohacking and speculative design to demonstrate the entrenched ways in which estrogen is a biomolecule with institutional biopower. It is ...
  • Kaur, Ishwinder (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    Social awareness in the workspace has been a classical architectural problem that has been tackled in various ways-ranging from architectural ways, such as the design of building atria, to technological ways, like connecting ...
  • Toledano, Eyal (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    CoSync is an on-device software framework for coordinating proximal consumer electronic devices in order to create a synchronized, opportunistic and collaborative device ecology. The CoSync device ecology combines multiple ...
  • Pashenkov, Nikita, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    This thesis proposes a model of creative activity on the computer incorporating the elements of programming, graphics, sound generation, and physical interaction. An interface for manipulating these elements is suggested, ...
  • Taylor, Cameron Roy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Though there have been remarkable advances in powered prosthesis technology over the past decade, design limitations of commercial electric motors are one of the main bottlenecks in meeting critical device requirements, ...
  • Fry, Benjamin Jotham, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Design techniques for static information are well understood, their descriptions and discourse thorough and well-evolved. But these techniques fail when dynamic information is considered. There is a space of highly complex ...
  • Schmitt, Peter (Peter Alfons) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    The digital revolution has fundamentally changed our lives by giving us new ways to express ourselves through digital media. For example, accessible multimedia content creation tools allow people to instantiate their ideas ...
  • Brueckner, Sophia (Sophia Agnes) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Popular connective technologies are supposed to save us time and simplify our lives, but instead we are more overwhelmed and scattered than ever. These same technologies promised to help keep us close to our friends and ...
  • Levin, Golan (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    This thesis presents a new computer interface metaphor for the real-time and simultaneous performance of dynamic imagery and sound. This metaphor is based on the idea of an inexhaustible, infinitely variable, time-based, ...
  • Yan, Hao, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2000)
    Using face-to-face conversation as an interface metaphor, an embodied conversational agent is likely to be easier to use and learn than traditional graphical user interfaces. To make a believable agent that to some extent ...
  • Panoptic 
    Sanchez Lengeling, Thomas (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Imagine traveling to a destination and, once you are there, hearing only car horns or seeing only a green sky. This project is an augmented reality experience in which you see and hear your current city while you are in ...
  • Yu, Zhao (Zhao Amy) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
  • Qi, Jie, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    In this dissertation, I explore the theme of wonder in technology, learning and self-expression through the lens of paper electronics, which is circuit building on paper using conductive tapes and circuit components as ...
  • Patz, Geva, 1973- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    This thesis describes the design and implementation of an environment to allow quantum computation to be simulated on classical computers. Although it is believed that quantum computers cannot in general be efficiently ...
  • Kao, Frank (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1995)
  • Laibowitz, Matthew Joel, 1975- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    Distributed sensor networks offer many new capabilities for monitoring environments with applicability to medical, industrial, military, anthropological, and experiential fields. By making such systems mobile, we increase ...
  • Stempeck, Matt (Matt Kelly) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    Recent years have seen an increase in natural and man-made crises. Information and communication technologies are enabling citizens to contribute creative solutions and participate in crisis response in myriad new ways, ...
