Biomimetic Active Prosthesis for Above-Knee Amputees PDF Print E-mail

This study proposes a novel biomimetic active prosthesis for above-knee amputees. The clinical impact of this technology focuses on improving an amputee’s gait symmetry, walking speed, and metabolic energy consumption on variant terrain conditions. The electromechanical design of this robotic device mimics the body's own musculoskeletal design, using actuator technologies that have muscle-like behaviors and can integrate control methodologies that exploit the principles of human locomotion. This work seeks to advance the field of biomechatronics by contributing to the development of intelligent assistive technologies that adapt to the needs of the physically challenged.

Bimba PDF Print E-mail

Bimba is a playful interface that sonifies movement by embedding electronics into inflatable balls. By means of physical manipulation of the balls, users can create musical compositions. The musical output of the system is directly mapped to the motion of the balls, thus, the creations depend on physical laws.

BiDi Screen PDF Print E-mail

The BiDi Screen is an example of a new type of thin I/O device that possesses the ability both to capture images and display them. Scene depth can be derived from BiDi Screen imagery, allowing for 3D gestural and 2D multi-touch interfaces. This bidirectional screen extends the latest trend in LCD devices, which has seen the incorporation of photo-transistors into every display pixel. Using a novel optical masking technique developed at the Media Lab, the BiDi Screen can capture light field-like quantities, unlocking a wide array of applications from 3D gesture and touch interaction with CE devices, to seamless video communication.
