  • DePalma, Nicholas Brian (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    In this body of work, I present a situated and interactive agent perception system that can index into its world and, through a bidirectional exchange of referential gesture, direct its internal indexing system toward both ...
  • Hirsch, Matthew Waggener (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    In this thesis, I describe a new type of interactive display that supports both on-screen multi-touch interactions and off-screen hover-based gestures. This BiDirectional (BiDi) screen, capable of both image capture and ...
  • Mani, Ankur (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    In this thesis, I study bilateral exchanges in social networks. I integrate the market based approach in economics and network based approach in sociology. I also give a joint model of externalities and peer pressure in ...
  • Dong, Wei, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Stage performances present many challenges and opportunities in the field of robotics. Onstage robots not only have to function flawlessly, they must interact convincingly with their human counterparts and adhere to a rigid ...
  • Roy, Brandon C. (Brandon Cain) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2013)
    A hallmark of a child's first two years of life is their entry into language, from first productive word use around 12 months of age to the emergence of combinatorial speech in their second year. What is the nature of early ...
  • Calvo, Andres (Andres Alejandre) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Kinesthetic haptic devices can make us feel that we are touching or holding objects that are not actually there by applying a force directly onto a user's body. As a corollary of Newton's third law, these devices are ...
  • Nattinger, Elena Jessop (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Performing artists have frequently used technology to sense and extend the body's natural expressivity via live control of multimedia. However, the sophistication, emotional content, and variety of expression possible ...
  • Levinger, Joshua Sable (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2010)
    Many modern social movements advocate boycotts as a mechanism to pursue social change. However, these campaigns are often broad in scope and limited to committed activists as potential adherents. This thesis describes a ...
  • Liu, Anne (Anne Ani) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    Acknowledging and reflecting upon the cultural and scientific discourses that shape the notions the female body, this thesis presents a biopolitical feminist work in which a woman controls the motility of spermatozoa through ...
  • Ghandeharioun, Asma (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    There are many health-related risks associated with chronic stress. One approach for addressing this issue comes from strengthening inside self-regulation abilities rather than eliminating outside sources of stress. However, ...
  • Blackshaw, Matthew (Matthew Andrew) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2012)
    Today's online marketplaces for goods and services are imperfect. Participants make an initial post expressing their intention to buy or sell an object, but all offers on this post are private. These offers can be seen as ...
  • Rahimi, Ali, 1976- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2001)
    Tracking multiple people using cameras is similar to the well-studied problem of tracking multiple radar or sonar echoes. This thesis shows that current camera-based tracking algorithms convert each image in a video sequence ...
  • Kermode, Roger George, 1968- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1994)
  • Martin-Anderson, Brandon (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Recent research has found that in some cases travel time variance is more important than mean travel time in travel mode choice. This implies shared infrastructure transportation modes prone to service unreliability stand ...
  • Goyal, Pragun (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    CAD (Computer Aided Design) software allows one to describe a design in great detail and at any arbitary scale. However, our interface to CAD is still largely through traditional avenues: screen, keyboard and pointing ...
  • Silver, Jay (Jay Saul) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    We are disconnected from our environment. We can't reconnect because we can't even see the Nature within our urban surroundings. Inspired by urban explorers and Nature Awareness traditions, I will develop methodologies and ...
  • Ma, Hongshen, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2004)
    The Nanogate is a micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) device that uses a cantilever structure to control the separation between two extremely flat surfaces. It has been proposed that the Nanogate be used as part of a ...
  • Turransky, Alan, Greg (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Mellis, David Adley (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
    This thesis explores the effects of digital fabrication on the design, production, and customization of consumer electronic devices. It does so through a series of three case studies - a radio, a pair of speakers, and a ...
  • Ypodimatopoulos, Polychronis Panagiotis (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
    Internet-based mobile communications have been increasing rapidly [5], yet there is little or no progress in platforms that enable applications for discovery, context-awareness and sharing of data and services in a peer-wise ...
