Today’s mobile devices surpass desktop PCs in terms of portability and pervasivity. However, the way we use and what we understood these miniaturization devices are no superior to WIMP of old times. My research is to dig out new interaction vocabularies by developing novel mobile devices. My tools include hardware prototyping, and computer vision. Recently, my thoughts are around nail-mounted devices, short depth sensors, and digital fabrication.
