We’ll present some of our most recent HCI research at the 34rd ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI’2016 aka CHI4good) in San José. Topics span an exploration of the peripheral view, fabrication for “hacking” existing physical interfaces and various topics related to geography and computing.
