Make your own HCI!

I am currently doing a group project for the Human Computer Interaction course at the Media Technology MSc Programme, where we’re exploring the possibilities of interaction with paper and computers. The key part of the project is to figure out a way to get non-technical users to develop their own (game) controllers that can be build solely using paper. The controller has to control a game or application on the computer.

The project is still in a very early and experimental/explorational phase, but here is a demonstration video of one of the prototypes. In this prototype, it was possible to use AR markers to build a virtual dashboard where the users could create and control certain input devices (knobs, sliders, switches) by moving AR markers around.
