Dr Zhuying Li

Zhuying has received her PhD, congratulations!

Her dissertation is called: Understanding the Design of Ingestible Play

Abstract: Digital games that engage people with their bodies can not only facilitate health and wellbeing, but also help players get to know their bodies better. However, how games can engage people with the inside of their body, such as their intestines, is relatively unknown. This thesis introduces ingestible sensors – sensors that can be swallowed – to design “ingestible play” and presents a framework to guide designers when creating games that engage people with their interior body. This work advances human-computer interaction research by including the interior body, contributing to a more playful and humanised technology future.
