  • Ntabathia, Jude (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The internet has enabled people with few or no formal qualifications to create, share and disseminate cartographic information. One of the best platforms that has empowered citizens to create cartographic data is OpenStreetMap. ...
  • Duval, Jean-François, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The work of this thesis aims to enable the fast prototyping of multi-axis wearable robotic systems by developing a new modular electronics system. The flexible, scalable electronics architecture (FlexSEA) developed for ...
  • Schoessler, Philipp (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Pin based shape displays can not only give physical form to digital information, but they have the inherent ability to accurately move and manipulate objects that are placed on top of them. This document presents ways and ...
  • Nuñez, David S. (David Scott) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Mobile devices, like tablet computers, are potentially potent tools for delivering language learning to children otherwise unreachable at any reasonable scale in a variety of home situations. The ubiquity and distribution ...
  • Lazarovich, Amir (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The problem of maintaining complete control over and transparency with regard to our digital identity is growing more urgent as our lives become more dependent on online and digital services. What once was rightfully ours ...
  • Goodman, Daniel Hayim (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis describes the design and construction of pressure sensing matrices for capturing human location and activity data from large surfaces in a space such as the floors, walls, tabletops, countertops, and furniture. ...
  • Wang, Che-Wei, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis presents an investigation into the development of a series of devices that alter our relationship to time. The intention behind each of these devices is to help people become more aware of the temporality that ...
  • Sethi, Srishti (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Deep personal connections foster rich learning. Making such connections is one of the most valuable benefits of attending face-to-face conferences. Online technologies offer the opportunity to meet with more people at a ...
  • Satat, Guy (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In this thesis we demonstrate novel methods to overcome optical scattering in order to resolve information about hidden scenes, in particular for biomedical applications. Imaging through scattering media has long been a ...
  • Panjwani, Alisha (Alisha Hasan) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Storytelling and making are two of the oldest forms of self-expression. Through stories we give meaning to our everyday experiences making sense of our world. By making physical objects, we can create tangible representations ...
  • Niles, Savannah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    There is an emotional dimension to the informative function of the news. When we read the news we participate in a collective emotional experience- whether that is grief, celebration, worry, or wonder. News video is a ...
  • Jakimo, Noah (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Technologies for long-term recording of cellular pathway activation are constrained by the difficultly to constantly monitor transient signaling events and expression of target genes. To overcome these limitations we ...
  • Larrea-Tamayo, Hasier (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Urban space is too valuable to be static and unresponsive. Our cities are in urgent need of new architectural solutions that maximize space efficiency and respond to the complexities of life. What if the traditionally ...
  • Farah, Kamal (Kamal Cristobal) (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The boundaries and fabric of human experience are continuously redefined by microorganisms interacting at imperceptible scales. Though hidden, these systems condition our body and the environment we inhabit. Instruments ...
  • Legault, Julie, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    With the ability to transfer a trait from one creature to another purposefully, synthetic biology is advancing across unforeseen domains. From algae cells that convert carbon dioxide to fuel, biocementation bacteria to ...
  • Hashmi, Muhammad Ali, S.M. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Critical discourse analysis (CDA) aims to understand the link "between language and the social" (Mautner and Baker, 2009), and attempts to demystify social construction and power relations (Gramsci, 1999). On the other ...
  • Spaulding, Samuel Lee (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    In recent years there has been a renewed enthusiasm for the power of computer systems and digital technology to reinvent education. One-on-one tutoring is a highly effective method for increasing student learning, but the ...
  • Yang, Hye Soo (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This thesis presents Variable Reality, a wearable augmented reality-based system focused on creating a unique on-the-go reading experience that combines the readily accessible nature of digital books with the favorable ...
  • Borenstein, Greg (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Tabletop games and digital games offer designers divergent affordances and provide players with different kinds of pleasures. Tabletop games excel at creating rich and immediate social interactions. They require players ...
  • Bloomberg, Benjamin A (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
    Hyperproduction is a conceptual framework and a software toolkit which allows producers to specify a descriptive computational model and consequently an abstract state for a live experience through traditional operating ...
