RESEARCH

User Interface Design

User interface plays a significant role in interaction activities. We attempt to bridge different disciplines, including EECS, design, robotics, material science and engineering, psychology, etc., to explore new possibilities in user interface design.
Research topics include: tangible and actuated tangible UI, shape-changing UI, non-rigid UI, liquid-driven UI, haptics, etc.

Human Robot Interaction

HRI research aims to users’ perception and interaction experience while interacting with a robot. Many non-technical aspects will also affect such perception and experience. We apply interdisciplinary method to study various effects on and applications for human-robot interactions.
Research topics include: educational robots, robot and children, swarm robots, robot/animatronics for stage performance, cultural aspects in HRI, etc.

Interactive
Art

We attempt to adopt cutting-edge interaction technologies for interactive art creation. We also get inspired by the rich history of traditional Chinese arts and crafts.
Research topics include: Interactive narrative, interactive space, new traditional crafts art that utilizing new technology.
