Hong (Julie) Zhu (MASc - full time) "VeMap" This project focuses on determining the feasibility of using virtual environments to generate emotional responses similar to the real environments they are modelled on.
Dan Iaboni (PhD - full time) Undergraduate and Master's degrees in Systems Design at the University of Waterloo.
Kyle Renwick (MASc - full time) "Vibration-Based Haptic Feedback for 3D Object Manipulation" This project involved building and testing a pair of prototype mice with vibrating tactors. The purpose of this innovation is to help convey information that can be difficult to communicate otherwise in 3D manipulation, such as collision detection.
Rex Xu (MASc) "veBall: A Concept Input Device for Virtual 3D Manipulation"
Cathy Lin (MASc) "Evaluation of the Usability of 3D Input Devices in a Translation Task" This project focuses on comparing 3-D input devices in terms of performance and usability on 3D object translation tasks.
Antonia Palmer (MASc) "Case Stories: Promoting Learning Through Storytelling in an Online E-Learning System"
Lora Bruyn (MASc) ”Usability evaluation of 3-D input devices” This project focuses on comparing 3-D input devices in terms of performance and usability on 3D object selection tasks.
Scott Anderson (MASc)
Alice Thomas (MASc) Alice received her BASc in Systems Design Engineering from UW in 1995. She worked for Citibank for 18 months as a human factors specialist before starting her MASc in January 1997. Her thesis, The effects of intergrating kinesthetic feedback, force feedback and non-speech audio feedback in human computer interaction, was completed in August 1998. Currently she is a Senior Interface Designer with 724 Solutions in Toronto.
Nick Hoh (MASc - inactive) Nick received his Honours Bachelor's of Science in Kinesiology with Ergonomics Option at the University of Waterloo in April 1997. He started his graduate studies in May 1998, and is now taking a sabbatical from his studies. Nick currently works for 724 Solutions in Toronto as a Senior Interface Designer.
