Outfitting and testing

We just finished outfitting Pulse lab! We have a loungey brainstorming space, making spaces, boardroom table and interaction space; coming soon will be a new dance floor!

This month too our amazing ABLE team (from Health and Medical Sciences, Computer Science and Humanities) met to test out our gesture based biometric interface and brainstorm first steps for our project. We will be reaching out to partners in senior residences, to create apps that help seniors with dementia to engage in physical arts based practices in their homes with family and caregivers. The goal is to bring pleasure and interaction to lessen boredom and isolation and improve mood and quality of life.
