Microsoft Research 2010


Research internship with Microsoft Research Cambridge in United Kingdom. I joined the Socio-Digital Systems group and worked with Richard Banks. I developed a series of hardware sketches to support the design of haptic interfaces.

This work resulted in the publication of a research article titled Designing through making: exploring the simple haptic design space. It was published at the conference on Tangible, embedded, and embodied interaction (TEI '11), and I demoed the hardware sketches during the event.

TEI 2011 paper and poster

This is the poster I made for my participation at the Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI) 2011 conference in Madeira, Portugal. It complements the article and demos that were accepted for publication.

Website archive

I built a website to document my daily activities and collect all my work files related to my internship.

Everyday I tried to write down a few lines regarding what I've done and explain the different challenges I faced.

The website archive contains all the videos, photos and source files of the Processing + Arduino sketches I fiddled with. The website is not yet publicly available, but folks at Microsoft Research can access internally.
