ACM CHI'22 Workshop: Actuated Materials and Soft Robotics Strategies for Human-Computer Interaction Design

Ali Shtarbanov, Ozgun Kilic Afsar

May 1, 2022
9:00am — 5:00pm ET

This one-day workshop co-organized by Media Lab researchers, Ozgun Kilic Afsar from Tangible Media and Ali Shtarbanov from Responsive Environments, will explore how to make soft robotics prototyping and innovation more accessible to both researchers and non-researchers. They will (1) investigate and identify the various difficulties designers face in the creation of HCI applications that require the transfer of knowledge from other domains, and (2) discuss possible solutions and visions on how to overcome those difficulties. The workshop will accommodate up to 30 participants and allow a space for critical discussion and exchange of experiences in the interplay of HCI and Soft Robotics.
