Workshop at CHI’19

Josh is co-organizing a workshop at CHI’19 in Glasgow, UK:

The Body as Starting Point:

Applying Inside Body Knowledge for Inbodied Design – Sunday, May 5 at CHI 2019, Glasgow, UK

Inbodied design is an emerging area in HCI, focusing on using knowledge of the body’s internal systems and processes to inform em-bodied and circum-bodied design. This hands-on, cross-domain workshop will enable participants to take the body as a starting point to create novel and beneficial experiences for the human body.

Imagine how we might:

use sleep to help us improve spatial navigation – tuning an internal GPS
use movement and eating to be more creative – building the gut-brain axis
use social endocrinology to help introverts & extraverts get along right away
build gut-feeling sensitivity to improve decision-making
use temperature to improve memory
Think about cycles of use to use technology to get off technology for self-health maintenance?

What would interactive systems that foster these approaches look like?

To address these kinds of questions, it really helps to know a few things about how we work under our integumentary system, as the physio-neuro-electro-chemical social systems we are.

Come to this workshop to contribute your knowledge, build new ideas and skills, and use this workshop to explore,  practice and build this new area of HCI, when we take the body as a starting point.

1 day workshop – short position papers due feb 21

Balance Ninja

Vertigo – the momentary disruption of the stability of perception – is an intriguing game element that underlies many unique play experiences, such as spinning in circles as children to rock climbing as adults. Yet vertigo is relatively unexplored when it comes to digital play. We explore the potential of Galvanic Vestibular Stimulation (GVS) as a game design tool for digital vertigo games. We designed and studied a novel two player GVS game, Balance Ninja. With this work we aim to highlight that vertigo can be a valuable digital game element that helps to expand the range of games we play.

The Guts Game

The Guts Game is a digital game that uses ingestible sensors to highlight emerging opportunities to design novel bodily experiences.

Unlike most games that are controlled via external controllers, the Guts Game uses an ingestible sensor in the form of a pill, with which the players control the game by varying their gut temperature. With the Guts Game, we show that the usage of gut temperature as a game input is feasible and demonstrate that experiencing your body as play, via an ingestible sensor, can be a mesmerizing play experience.

Brainwave Art

During Brainwave Art workshops participants make an abstract image inspired by their dreams. Participants then use an EEG headset so that their own brainwaves animate their personal dream image.

Workshop participants can experiment and play with how their brainwaves affect and change their dream image. Sleep is one of the three pillars of health alongside diet and exercise. But unlike diet and exercise, sleep is an under-explored area. We use our unique Brainwave Art system in interactive exhibitions and public workshops. Our Brainwave Art system aims to help educate people about the importance of sleep and helps them connect with their resting mind.
