Gelly is a mutual capacitance based sensor that can sense touch localization, proximity, pressure, and shear. Our project aims to guide the development path of the Gelly and explore the application space of this new technology.

The smart fur prototype is a new type of touch sensor built with conductive fur, with the goal of aiding in gesture recognition in the Haptic Creature system.

Radiologists use 30-year-old technology to interact with cutting-edge diagnostic imagery. We studied their problem and looked at the ways haptic feedback could be used to improve it.
