Chalkaat: Augmented Reality Laser-cutting

Present day laser cutting tools allow users to do subtractive manipulation of material, hence democratizing manufacturing. However, we felt that the methods to manipulate such machines aren’t yet evolved enough.  Hence we present, a pen stroke based UI for interacting with laser cutters, where the users can express themselves more directly by working directly ‘ …

Glassified: Augmenting a traditional ruler with digital functionality

We introduce Glassified, a modified ruler with a transparent display to supplement physical strokes made on paper with virtual graphics. Because the display is transparent, both the physical strokes and the virtual graphics are visible in the same plane. A digitizer captures the pen strokes in order to update the graphical overlay, fusing the traditional …

MozArt: Multimodal 3D UI for conceptual modeling

Motivation- 3D modeling has been revolutionized in recent years by the advent of computers. While computers have become much more affordable and accessible to the masses, computer modeling remains a complex task involving a steep learning curve and extensive training. According to a survey 80 percent people want to model/create to visualize their imagination using their …

Fluid in-fluid

‘Fluid in-fluid’ explores the mingling of liquid colours into water and tries to capture the mixture into an interactive light-form.  We wanted to develop a computer-less/tangible form for the same(though computers were used for the prototype). The prototype was demo-ed at a non-profit exhibit in Bangalore. Water is the base, transparent as PNG’s background. Colors mix …
