  • 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 ...
  • Zoran, Amit (Amit Shlomo) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
    Today's tools and instruments, whether musical or graphical, fall into two very distinct classes, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. Traditional physical instruments offer a richness and uniqueness of qualities that ...
  • Fabio, Michael A., S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    This thesis presents several works involving robotic musical instruments. Robots have long been used in industry for performing repetitive tasks, or jobs requiring superhuman strength. However, more recently robots have ...
  • Pliam, Steven L (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2007)
    In the performing arts, the relationship that is established between what is seen and what is heard must be experienced to fully appreciate and understand the aesthetics of performance. Actual physical objects such as ...
  • DiMicco, Joan Morris (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    People collaborating in groups have potential to produce higher-quality output than individuals working alone, due to the pooling of resources, information, and skills. Yet social psychologists have determined that groups ...
  • Abromowitz, Madeleine Rose (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    A new 'axial-transverse flux' motor (ATFM) topology is of interest to autonomous lower-extremity robotics designers for its high torque density and low winding resistance. Unfortunately, deliberate asymmetries in the design ...
  • Iyengar, Giridharan Ranganathan, 1969- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1999)
  • Taylor, Sara Ann (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Electrodermal activity (EDA) refers to the electrical activity measured on and under the surface of the skin and has been used to study sleep, stress, and mood. While gathering this signal was once confined to the laboratory, ...
  • Ly, Eric Thich Vi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1993)
  • Lam, Francis, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
    Despite rapid technological advancement and improvement in network bandwidth, people still like to use text for remote communication. Simplicity, directness and anonymity make textual chat the most popular method of ...
  • Webb, Penelope Eugenia (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017)
    This thesis aims to utilize an output method for popup fabrication, using chemical inflation as a technique for instant, hardware-free shape change. By applying state-changing techniques as a medium for material activation, ...
  • Dasgupta, Sayamindu (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
    Data is a powerful lens for learning about the world. Driven by advances in computational technologies and methods that make it easier to collect, store, and analyze vast amounts of data about our world, data science has ...
  • Breyer, Nell (Nell Beryl), 1971- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
    Children's comprehension of special effects was examined in a series of digital video workshops designed for 9-14 year olds. Children assessed illusions in film, TV and video. They made observations about a mood or message ...
  • Downie, Marc (Marc Norman), 1977- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2005)
    The marriage of dance and interactive image has been a persistent dream over the past decades, but reality has fallen far short of potential for both technical and conceptual reasons. This thesis proposes a new approach ...
  • Manor, Justin, 1978- (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2003)
    This thesis presents an environment that enables a single person to improvise video and audio programming in real time through gesture control. The goal of this system is to provide the means to compose and edit video ...
