Project Pajama EE3789

Proposal Code 3789
Title Affective and emotional communication toolkit
Synopsis Communication is one of the most fundamental needs and desire of human beings. The
convergence of the Internet, broadband and mobile devices make remote communication
easily available, even while on the move. In human communications, body gestures, and
touch can sometimes more deeply explain the intended mind and provide intrinsic
information. Our research seeks to propose and develop communication methods that allow
for affective, emotional and individual expressions.
In this project, students will develop a simple toolkit that allows users to easily make their
own affective communication interface. This communication interface should work in a "plug
and play" manner with existing mobile devices. Students are to demonstrate with a few types
simple, self-made interface using this toolkit to communicate between two people.
